In Montego Bay, Jamaica, there is a huge violation of human rights and respect. This cemetery is over 100 years old and is where generations of Jewish people buried their loved ones. The St. James Municipal Corporation is trying to get permission to turn this historically Jewish cemetery into a parking lot. The cemetery is located in an area that is now highly congested with tourist attractions, such as Margaritaville and multiple resorts. This could be why they are pushing for this parking lot to cover the bodies of people who lived before us. The corporation's reasoning for thinking this horrific act is okay is due to the fact there is a law in place backing them. This law states that if a cemetery hasn't had a new burial within the past 20 years, then it is up to the parish to decide what the cemetery will be used for.
