Greenfield Ordinance Committee Meets Tomorrow, 6:30 p.m.

Tomorrow, Monday, April 14, at 6:30 p.m., the Greenfield Ordinance Committee will meet at 114 Main St. in the Planning Department office. They will be voting on a number of new ordinances that have come before their review. However, e have no guarantee that they will be voting once more on Howard Clark's Burial Ordinance proposal which was introduced almost a year ago. They already voted it once and passed it, but somehow it got lost or taken off the vote. It has to be voted on to move on to the Town Council vote. This is the 50th anniversary of the passing of the Civil Right Bill that which should have given equal rights to all ethnic groups, including the basic right of sanctity of human burials. There is no accounting for the attitudes of racism that still exist in so many subtle ways in society today. The Nolumbeka Project wants to challenge the Ordinance Committee to move on a vote.If you can come and support us that would be very powerful.
