No Theme Park Plan on Sacred Slave Port

1. A great abuse of the sacred is about to be enacted in the name of fun tourism, with sobs of crocodile (pretended) grieving. This petition is an effort to expose and stop the vandalism.

2. Throughout history, sites at which tragedy has occurred have been consecrated as sacred by those who witnessed and wish to commemorate the sadness that took place. Whenever evil takes place on a large scale, it is universally accepted that the places of horrific occurrences should be remembered, and remain intact. The extermination camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau, where you can still hear the shrill screams of over 1.1 million Jews and other victims who were slaughtered by gas chambers, systematic starvation, forced labor, and medical experiments, is not to be touched by the industrial world because of the significance it holds to those who lost their loved ones to the evils of the Holocaust. The Killing Fields in Cambodia, with the mist of injustice and the smell of 200,000 corpses still surrounding the monuments, remains impervious to development because of the indisputable horror of the Genocide that took place there.


Currently, the slave port of Badagery, Nigeria is the subject of heated debate, as the Jackson Family (previously known as the Jackson 5) has made plans to place a %u201CSlavery Memorial Theme Park%u201D (complete with a spa, mini-golf course, and a Jackson 5 museum with audio-animotronics of the famous brothers) on top of this place that should be consecrated as sacred ground. Should the horror of Slavery (with nearly ten times the victims of the Aushwitz-Birkenau camp) not hold the same significance as that Holocaust or that of Cambodian Genocide? It is pure ignorance and irresponsibility for the Jacksons to place a landmark for their own monetary interest on top of a hallowed place that holds great importance for so many people around the world.
