Guåhan Weeps

For this post, I thought I would share a song an old hardcore band I was in, Minatatnga (meaning bravery/fearlessness in Chamorro) wrote to protest the militarization of our islands and of our people. It may not be the kind of music most people are into, but the lyrics are what counts!

Here are the lyrics:

Colonization
False Liberation
Intoxicating
Native Decimation

American Flag
Tries to strip our culture
Dreams of Money, Dreams of Military
Shoved down our throat, so damn holy

Colonization
False Liberation
Intoxicating
Native Decimation

Children of Guåhan
Dying for foreign cause
When they should stay
Protect This place
Defend our people
Defend our home

Colonization
False Liberation
Intoxicating
Native Decimation

We will stand for this!
Chamoru, We will stand, We shall stand for this land!!”

and most importantly here is the link to the song!
