Victoria Tower Gardens is already home to memorials commemorating past struggles for justice and democratic causes. There is no better place for the Memorial, which will stand as a fitting reminder of the horrors of the past and encourage reflection on their implications for the British government and society, both at the time and subsequently. The view of Parliament from the Memorial will serve as a permanent reminder that political decisions have far-reaching consequences.
