Is it wrong to get the dead to help with recyclingPosted: October 11, 2010
Shitty thing to hear first thing on a Monday hey?
This Monday, our poll is about Durban`s space shortage in graveyards. The council is planning to re-use the land by digging up your aunties remains and putting them in a group/mass grave next to the cemetery, and then re-use the plot to bury the next dead guy or girl.
Now before you vote, id like to warn you that this blog is not a religious or political blog and i can’t (unfortunately) give a shit about your political or religious views without upsetting the next guy. I wont even try swing your vote by telling you what i think cause who am i to say if its right to dig up you family member and move him/her over the fence. Whilst on the religion thingy, the Muslims seem to be in favour of this grave recycling , and they usually allow for 8-10 years, and then bury the next guy/girl and so they go. The only catch is that you have to be a Muslim(seems fair to me)
Here are some facts:-
· 59 out of the 60 cemetery`s in Durban are full (people are dying to get in)
· the city was warned this would happen in 2001
· Cemeteries and Crematoria Act states that the municipality can do whatever they want with the grave after 10 years. (why are we even voting hey)
· the municipality feels they have no other option.
Ok I’m finished, vote your heart out. You can also add a comment but nothing too religious or political or ill delete it. Durban is in grave danger (get it) you can help….i suppose you could also make it worse.
