Protest on Saturday 13 August
Register from here
We invite you to join us on a trip to Comino on Saturday 13th August, during which we will once again liberate the Blue Lagoon from commercial interests and exercise our right to enjoy this beautiful place.
We will be travelling to Blue Lagoon via chartered boats, leaving from Ċirkewwa, Malta, and Mġarr, Gozo at 8am sharp.
To book your place, you’ll need to register from http://www.comino.movimentgraffitti.org and purchase your ticket for the discounted price of €11.
Return trips will be scheduled throughout the afternoon.
Don’t forget your towels, umbrellas and placards with your message to the authorities. We also strongly encourage you to bring your own food and plenty of water, so as not to give business to the many kiosks that have also taken over the area and ruined the atmosphere of the place with loud music.
Why are we going to Comino again?
After our first action to reclaim the Blue Lagoon from deckchair operators back in June, we hoped the government would take significant action to limit the over-commercialisation that has effectively turned this paradise into a private lido.
Sadly, the only action the authorities have taken is to ban deckchairs from the small sandy beach, a token gesture intended to sweep all the other problems on Comino under the carpet.
What’s more, two letters we sent to the five ministers who are responsible for the management of Comino have been left unanswered, while tourism minister Clayton Bartolo deflected questions on the matter put to him in parliament.
And so we head to Comino – this time with the public by our side – to reiterate our demands and show that we will not be ignored.
