No To Buildings On Ground-Zero

Petition to prevent any building on "ground zero" area where the shocking incident took place on 29th March 2013 which took away so many innocent lives.

Parents lost their beloved kids playing near the mosque. Some families lost their sole bread earners in the construction works. Some were just on the road, going to church on Good Friday.

The area should be preserved as a reminder of the tragic loss we have all suffered.

Additionally, the nearby building of the same owner should also be taken down ASAP to prevent any further casualties.

By signing, you let the concerned authorities know your displeasure at the act and ask them to do their best to attain this goal.

On 29 March 2013, corruption and greed allowed a 16 floor building to collapse on innocent people, injuring and killing dozens of our friends, relatives and countrymen.

Lives were lost because of failure of the government to regulate the construction.

This is a petition to prevent any building on "ground zero" area where the shocking incident took place which took away so many innocent lives.

The death, injuries and rescue efforts are all etched into our memories. We humbly ask the scene be preserved as testament to this.

Additionally, we ask the nearby building of the same owner be taken down as soon as possible to prevent any further casualties and resume normal functioning of facilities such as the nearby health centre.
