Honorable Sebastian L. Anefal
Yap (Wa’ab), a small island of 100 square kilometers in the Western Pacific, is facing its social-cultural demise RIGHT NOW.

A Chinese company, Exhibition & Travel Group, (ETG), is planning to carry out its massive tourism investment in Yap. The people of Yap were poorly informed about the project and consequently had practically no input in the decision-making process. Regardless of the strong suspicion and disagreement among the populace in Yap, Yap state Governor and Council of Pilung (Council of Chief) have insisted on cooperating with ETG for its massive tourism investment.

We are a NPO named "Concerned Citizens Group" in Yap. Our organization consists of citizens of Yap who care about civic issues, especially relating to ETG's controversial investment in Yap. We have been expressing our strong disagreement with Government's cooperation with the ETG via very possible way since August 2012. However, Government officials have chosen to collaborate with ETG instead of listening to our exclaimed plea. Your support is very important to us!
