Russian community supports overturning Insular Cases

SUPPORT: A small group of Russian asylum-seekers gathered at the Guam Congress Building in Hagåtña on Wednesday. The group supports House Resolution 279, also known as the Insular Cases Resolution. "As people who have fled persecution in their origin country for fighting against injustice and trampling of basic human rights and freedom, we are very sensitive to the issues raised in H.Res. 279. In the modern world there is no place for 'alien races' treatment, no place for a system of rules of the age of colonies, no place for separation and inequality doctrine for territories," the group stated, in part.
