APEX Express

APEX Express – March 20, 2008

Pacific Islanders in a war overseas, in a fight for self-determination at home. We call Pratap Chatterjee in the Middle East.  Hear about Fijian truck drivers who have driven into Iraq over a hundred times but are now owed back pay, some un-able to return home. And, indigenous people from Guam fight to for a voice on an island that is still a US colony.  Hear how a bill might increase the workforce for an expanded US military presence on the island, but may add hardship for migrant, lower-skilled workers.
