More bodies. No accountability
Tap Pilam Coahuiltecan Nation statement on the discovery of more bodies at the Alamo. Are San Antonio officials hiding the truth?
By: Tap Pilam Coahuiltecan Nation
Despite countless requests for full disclosure by the Tap Pilam Coahuiltecan Nation, the Texas GLO and Alamo Trust Inc. have intentionally hid the discoveries of bodies at the Alamo Cemetery. We are confident that when the open record request documents are officially made available there will be multiple instances of human remains discovered at the site.
"As residents of the city of San Antonio we cannot be ok with the Texas GLO and Alamo Trust Inc actions to disturb the sacred burial grounds of our relatives and ancestors." says Ramon Vasquez, spokesperson for the Tap Pilam Coahuiltecan Nation, "This is a disgrace and we cannot continue to allow the desecration of our sacred burial ground."
The open records request is the second initiated by Tap Pilam Coahuiltecan Nation, as part of a federal lawsuit filed in early September that directly addressed City of San Antonio Councilman Roberto Trevino and Alamo Trust CEO Douglas McDonald as promoters of misinformation as they urge city officials to move forward with proposed Alamo Complex development plans.
The Historic Design Review Commission recently voiced their issues with the development plans as they tabled a vote on the design for the first phase of the Alamo redevelopment plan. The reason: they want to know the outcome of the lawsuit before moving forward.
Tap Pilam Coahuiltecan nation is demanding that construction cease immediately until Human Remains Protocol is properly executed and the dead buried on the sacred ground are honored.
