From Thu Jan 11, 2007 2:00 am to Sat Jan 13, 2007 1:59 am (included)
|39 New human remains were uncovered under the haul road today.
This brings the total count to 270. (City claims 267)
It is extremely frustrating to know that everyone knew that there were going to be major remains found under the haul road.
That is why we have been calling for the complete excavation of the haul road since the first remains were found in the manholes.
There is no way that this can be explained as accidental droppings from when the pit was being cleared.
It is apparent that the haul road was constructed from dirt and debris from the pit as has been alleged and not from fresh fill.
Someone needs to take responsibility for this and not just compound lies with additional lies.
We need to present this as a unified front at the Community Board 1 Meeting next week.
We still do not have a copy of the search plan or the protocols.
The city wasted 2 months.
We need someone not under the control of the city to take over the project.
As the number of remains keep increasing we still have not gotten one positive ID from any of the over 1,000 remains that were found over the past year.
It is a disgrace.
Put It Above Ground
