I wonder what the penality is for voilating this ban is?


French Mayor Bans Residents from Dying

Thu Aug 22,10:25 AM ET

LE LAVANDOU, France (Reuters) - The mayor of a French Mediterranean town, faced with a cemetery "full to bursting," has banned local residents from dying until he can find somewhere else to bury them.
Gil Bernardi, mayor of Le Lavandou on the coast 15 miles west of Saint Tropez, introduced the ban after a court rejected his plans to build a cemetery in a tranquil setting by the sea.
Bernardi said most locals had obeyed the edict so far, but he was desperately trying to find a resting place for a homeless man who had recently passed away in the town.
"Initially, the decree has been remarkably well followed," the mayor said.
Bernardi has appealed against the ruling preventing the seaside cemetery being built, saying it would be the best final resting place for his townsfolk.

"What people want here, because it's a local tradition, is their own little personal plot of land, their burial spot, not an impersonal pigeonhole," he said.

Death, of course.

Now there's an argument for cremation if I've every heard one...I'm talking about the mayor, not the bodies!

This is an aviation board but just for your info, the french gov. is not socialist. But they still have 5 weeks of vacations minimum, big money allowance for kids, free education and total medical coverage that they call social security. So in a way they are as bad as you say.:D
