Bulldozing the temple

Here stands an ancient relic, a monument to the dead. One of many. Undisturbed for hundreds of years, now the bulldozers are driving up. 

[In more detail: this is a small flat-topped pyramid with a crater in one side. It is about 8 feet above ground level and shaped like other American burial mounds - but considerably smaller, in a traditional New England style. This style is common in the Charles and Merrimack River watersheds. If you click in to magnify, you'll see a hint of a platform or "terrace" - which is not so common]

This development at the Hopping Brook Industrial Park in Holliston, MA needs to be publicized. Is there anything you could do? How about calling a friend or someone you know from Holliston, and giving them a nudge? How about writing a letter to a newspaper, like the "Holliston Reporter"?

"Ethnic cleansing is the systematic forced removal of ethnic or religious groups from a given territory by a more powerful ethnic group, with the intent of making it ethnically homogeneous.[1] The forces applied may be various forms of forced migration (deportation, population transfer), intimidation, as well as mass murder and genocidal rape.
Ethnic cleansing is usually accompanied with the efforts to remove physical and cultural evidence of the targeted group in the territory through the destruction of homes, social centers, farms, and infrastructure, and by the desecration of monuments, cemeteries, and places of worship..."
