IGNOMINY

AMERICA ARE YOU THE CHAMPION
OF ALL MEN WHO ARE OPPRESSED
SO WHY HAVE OUR BIGGEST PROBLEMS
TO THIS DAY ILAVE STILL NOT ADDRESSED?

WILAI IRONY DOES BEFALL US
THAT THOUGH GUAM IS OF THE USA
WE ARE NOT YET FULL CITIZENS
AND STILL FEEL ALIENATED TO THIS DAY?

YES WE HAVE THE ORGANIC ACT
BUT IT IS AN ACT NOT OF OUR CHOICE
NOW WE ARE ASKING FOR COMMONWEALTH
BUT THE FEDS STILL NOT HEAR OUR VOICE.

GUAM HAS SENT A DRAFT ACT TO CONGRESS
AN ACT THAT EXPRESSED THE GUAMANLAN'S WILL
THE FEDS SAY ITS NOT PROPER
WE PRAY IT WILL NOT BE VOLATILE

GLAM ASKS WHEN IT WILL THE GIAMANIANS
BE ALLOWEIT IU) SET THEIR IJESTINY
TO) MANIFEST THE.TR T)F.FPEST TESIKE
ANNT) FRASE FROM THEMSELVES THEIR IGNOMINY

ARE GUAMANLANS FOREVER GOING TO BE
ONLY LACKEYS OF THE USA
FOREVER DOING WHAT THE FEDS WANT
AND NOT DOING THINGS THE GUAM WAY?

GUAM NEEDS MORE THAN MATERIAL GOODS
GUAM NEEDS FOR HER MIND TO BE FREE
GUAMANIANS NEED TO BE SHOWN MORE RESPECT
AND GIVEN TRUE EQUALITY

GRANT US, DEAR AMERICA
OUR QUEST FOR SELF-DETERMINATION
RECOGNIZE TILL GUAMANLANS AS A PEOPLE
MAKE US A TRUE PART OF THE NATION

QUEST FOR COMMONWEALTH

WHAT IS THE REAL RELATIONSHIP

OF GUAM TO THE U.S. OF A?
NO MATTER WHAT IS REALLY SAID
GUAM IS STILL A COLONY TODAY.

GUAM HAS REMAINED ALL THESE YEARS

NOTHING BUT THE SPOILS OF WAR. HER SEEKING GREATER SELF RULE IS NOT UNLIKE REACHING FOR A STAR

YEARS AGO CONGRESS HAD DCCLARED WHEN GUAM IS READY SHE WILL NOD, AND GUAM WILL BE SELF GOVERNED

OR WAS THAT ONLY A FACADE?

WHERE THOSE INTENTION UNCLE SAM

ONLY "PROMISES EPHEMERAL", FOR GRANTING GUAM SELF GOVERNMENT

ARE ONLY INTENDS FAR FROM REAL?

WILL YOUR PROMISES BECOME TRUE

OR IS IT JUST AN ANOMALY? WU GUAM ALWAYS BE SUBSERVENT AND THEIR QUEST BE ONLY FOLLY?

TO THIS DAY CONGRESS STILL REFERS

TO GUAM AS HER POSSESSION, ISNT IT UNCONSTITUTIONAL TO OWN PEOPLE NO MATTER WHAT THE REASON?

PLEASE BE GENEROUS TO THIS LAND

GRANT HER PEOPLE TRUE DIGNITY. CEASE YOUR ROLF OF MASTER 10 SLAVE

IN TERMS OF UNCERTAINTY.

THE STATUS OF COMMONWEALTH WILL
REPLACE AN ACT THAT'S OUT-DATED.

FOR TRULY THE ORGANIC ACT
IS NOW NAUGHT BUT ANTIQUATED.

THE DRAFT ACT BEING SENT TO YOU WILL SURELY BE GUAM'S GUIDE AND TOOL.

THOUGHT NOT PERFECT WE ASK OF YOU THE CONCEPTS YOU WOULDNT OVCR-RULE.

SHOULDNT YOU NOW UNCLE SAM

PROVE TO THE WORLD AGAIN,
FOR JUSTICE YOU'LL ALLOW ALL
THEIR TRUE DESIRE TO ATTAIN?

LINDA A. TOLAN

Chairwoman

BELLE BALAORO Vice-Chairwoman

Mr. Chairman, Congressman Don Young, and the esteemed members of your Committee
on Resources of the 105th U.S. Congress, we humbly submit our testimony to your august
body and respectfully request the same to be included as part of the hearing record. We
pray for you to closely consider our perspective. We realize we are not one of the lucky
few officially selected to present oral testimony before you. Nevertheless, believing very
strongly in the universal precepts of Democracy and having great faith in the way the United
States of America practices such democratic principles, we hereby present our collective
thoughts and opinions for your consideration.

NILDA ESTAMPADOR

ARMANDO DOMINGUEZ

Rocording Secretary

We, the inhabitants of Guam who are of Filipino descent, declare that we do not fully support the Guam Commonwealth Act as presently drafted.

DICK DIAZ
Treasurer

We have stated this same position together with the Federation of Asian People on Guam in a resolution submitted last May to members of the U.S. Congress and to President Bill Clinton via the Department of Interior (enclosed herewith).

PETE LORIEGA PUDWOnovations Unieer

La us qualify the above statement. There are many positive elements in the Guam
Commonwealth Draft Act which would benefit all the inhabitants residing on Guam, as well
on the futuro goneratinnn who will live horo Thos provisione di rigard.cu LoueG widy
select fow, to the exclusion of other's licic, use prullunatic. Thuis is especially true ir llie
reasoning behind its justification runs counter to the U.S. Civil Rights Act and the basic
guarantees of the U.S. Constitution, -and even the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The provisions which violate the U.S. Constitution jeopardize the provisions which could
benefit all.

This will assure that the benefits and wealth it promises are commonly applicable to all inhabitants with no consequences for their ancestry. It must truly reflect what it originally set out to Ju. lu surge a closer relationship, not a contrast with, the L'nited States of America
