A Letter of Solidarity from Australia Regarding the Possibility of Chamorros Become a Native American Tribe

A Letter of Solidarity from Australia Regarding the Possibility of Chamorros Become a Native American Tribe:

Dear Hope Cristobal and all our Chamorro Friends

What distressing news this is. If the Chamorro Peoples become an internal tribe of the United States of America this will surely undermine your rights as a Non-Self Governing Peoples listed before the United Nations Committee on Decolonisation. Yet another stone is being thrown at the sovereign right of the Chamorro Peoples to the long-promised Act of Self-Determination. Without your Indigenous stewardship who will care for your ancestral lands and waters? We wish all Chamorro and supporters the strength, courage and clarity that you need to keep up the fight. You speak for all fair minded people - Indigenous and non-Indigenous alike. The day must surely come when Chamorro will be free. One day we will finally eradicate colonialism.


In lasting solidarity

The Chamoru are commonly believed to have come from Southeast Asia at around 2000 BCE. Based on appearance and culture, they are most closely related to other Austronesian natives to the west and Carolines to the south.

his week the National City Bank branch on Penn Avenue in
Pittsburgh was attacked with iron bars. We damaged the front windows,
smashed out the side windows, and destroyed the ATM. The reason we
chose this target is obvious.
