I just saw on the news, some contractors in Turkey who are widening a road at ANZAC Cove, have simply tipped all the excess dirt and rubble over the bank and totally covered the sacred beaches!!!
Oh my God. This is terrible. How could they be so absolutely stupid.
The work was halted by the Australian War graves Commission but too late, a lot of damages has been done.
TV3 News showed a comparison of the beach five years ago when they filmed there, to now - the beach is gone and the pile of rubble goes right out to the water. They even said this might put an end to the 90th Anniversary Commemorations
