The iconic Monash Playground twin towers are planned to be taken down via controlled demolition later this year, after receiving several complaints about their associations to the late twin towers, which were targeted in the historic 9/11 terror attacks.
“How do I explain to my kids when they ask me why the Monash Playground has two towers, and why they look like they’re falling down? A 6-year old can not comprehend terrorism. I refuse to sit down and explain this to a child.” Exclaimed a concerned parent.
“As we approach the 20 year anniversary of the attacks, many people are reflecting upon this, and realising that there are certain references to this horrific event in our lives, and we need to do something about this. It’s unacceptable to display swastikas in public, how are twin towers any different?”
The Monash council has stated that the decision to demolish them is one that’s long overdue.
“The twin towers came down on 9/11, ours should have came down on 10/11 out of respect. Australia/America relations are deeply important to us, and we need to continue to make efforts to build this bond between our two great nations. Frankly it’s embarrassing that it’s taken this long to correct, and to our American friends, I apologise greatly.”
