New Website: Militarization in the Marianas

check it out here.

Hafa Adai and Welcome to Militarization in the Marianas, an informational website about the U.S. military presence in the CNMI and Guam. This website serves to avail you of resources regarding the impacts of the U.S. military in the Marianas. It was designed for accessibility to the residents of the Marianas, who have often had only official Pentagon information to use in assessing that impact. It is meant to critically analyze the U.S. military as an institution that has been a domineering presence within the Marianas for decades, a presence that has not been adequately assessed and critiques because of this lack of information, even as it is projected to grow in the coming years. This website will help residents make informed decisions about future military plans for the use of these islands.  It will also allow community members to  assess the costs and abuses –documented and undocumented- that have been associated with the presence of such a powerful institution, especially in the midst of the upcoming military build-up.
