806- THREE ITEMS FYI

THREE ITEMS OF INTEREST, THE UNITY MARCH, FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND MORE RED FLAGS
These will be just short headlines with corresponding links to read the whole stories...
First:
Organizers firm up plans for NMI's first unity march:
Representative-elect Tina Sablan will lead the CNMI's first unity march to dramatize protest against the new local labor law and to express support for the extension of federal immigration law to the Commonwealth. In a news briefing yesterday morning at a pavilion along Beach Road in Garapan, Sablan described the march as “a historic and peaceful demonstration” for labor and immigration reform. It will be held on Dec. 7, Friday, starting at 4:30pm at Kilili Beach and moving down Beach Road to the American Memorial Park.
The Whole Story Here
Please participate in this if you are for fairness and equality for all people and want to send a message to the racist and biased government that has authored a terrible labor reform law.
Second:
Tactics of intimidation and repression:
Tuesday’s newspapers reported on a proposed House resolution, signed by Stanley Torres and eight other members, to castigate Ron Hodges for opinions he expressed publicly.
The Whole Story Here
Again this government seems to forget it is part of the US and wants to make its own rules on the freedoms afforded to us by the US Constitution.
Third:
Red flags up at 16 beach sites:
The Division of Environmental Quality has raised the red flag on 16 sites on Saipan.
The Whole Story Here
More reasons tourists don't want to come here. This has been an ongoing problem that no one seems to give a shit about...
