HAGATNA, Guam—Guam mapA life-size statue of Mabini was scheduled to be unveiled Monday in Asan at a new concrete monument near the Asan-Maina mayor’s office.

Asan-Maina Mayor Margaret Blas said she would proceed as planned to sign an “Agreement on Friendship and Cooperation” with the Philippine city of Tanauan, Mabini’s hometown.

Guam’s Philippine Consulate General Marciano de Borja said the statue was picked for Asan to honor the village that hosted Mabini and the other Filipino exiles from 1901 to 1903.

Protesters have said they were not informed of the project. They also questioned whether Mabini had a strong connection to their village.
