The Friends of the Monument will announce the number of signatures they collected for their support the Mariana Trench Marine National Monument petition at a press conference in the Mariana Trench Monument Office in Garapan on Monday, October 20, 2008 at 2:00 PM.
On Thursday night we ran in Commonwealth Senator Luis Crisostimo at Hawaiian Bar. I told him how many signatures the Friends of the Monument had collected.
If I saw Mr. Crisostimo today, I 'd have to tell him a new, higher number.
Even though the Friends have stopped collecting signatures, people are still turning them in. Cinta Kaipat turned over several signature packets from the Carolinian community last night and yesterday afternoon Agnes McPhetres picked up several packets from Hannah Borja over on Tinian. Tami Hunter dropped off some signatures on Friday and Andrew Salas and Ike Cabrera still have packets floating around.
