Breadfruit & Open Spaces

Deep in the jungle of rural Guam, Micronesian immigrants from Chuuk are living a dream come true: they have purchased land to build homes and plant crops for their families. These new migrants come determined to find work, plant their breadfruit trees and send their children to “American” schools. So they are devastated when the Guam Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) threatens to evict them. With their American Dream at stake, the residents organize and fight back.
