Storage unit construction over Moses Cemetary SHUT DOWN by protest

On the 4th of September, protesters descended on the Bethesda site where graves are potentially being dug up for a self-storage facility. With protesters coming, Bethesda Self Storage or their contractors sent their workers home for the day. Moses cemetery began as the spot owners of three plantations dumped the bodies of those who died at their unpaid work, and later was taken over by Macedonia Baptist Church.

Protesters blocked this access road to the area of construction. Had the site been active, this would have prevented dump trucks from passing.

Protesters put flowers on the fence around the hole being dug for Bethesda Self Storage's new storage units over the graves
