Petition to save Aberfan memorial
Okay, so I'm a little bit too young to remember this disaster, but to see Methyr Council considering selling off a playground erected in the memory of 144 people (of which 116 where primary school children) is, to be blunt, absolutely fucking disgusting.
The council say the area has become dilapidated. Well, why not spend some money on it, and continue to remember the kids who died.
I'm off to write an e-mail to their only email address
on the site. If you are similarly incensed I suggest you do the same.
Also the housing association who want to 're-develop' cannot be found at www.mtha.org.uk as espoused by the local council and several other links across the web. Even a WHOIS sheds no light. Anybody fancy registering the address?
