Following receipt of our letter notifying them of our petition Metropolitan Cemeteries Board have updated their website with the following:
"30 years of respectful implimentation of the renewal program".
"Caring for the memories of those departed: Ensuring that the state's most culturally significant cemetery remains open, is able to meet community need and endures as a site of importance to all Western Australians".
This clearly indicates to me that they have no idea of the repecussions this causes.
I say they have destroyed the WA culture, no one said it needed to close, they don't give two figs about the families in the community and they have destroyed the importance of family in WA.
I personally believe that they have NO valid argument for removal of headstones and therefore it must cease!
