National Protest on Saturday 27 May at 10.30am
Starting from the Triton Fountain, Valletta
Environmental organisations are calling on the public to participate in a national protest in Valletta on Saturday 27 May. The protest will start at 10.30 am from the Triton Fountain.
We are living a state of emergency. The quality of life and the natural environment of our islands are deteriorating rapidly due to a frenzy of reckless building everywhere. We are in this mess for one clear reason. Behind this wave of environmental destruction lies a web of politicians and developers who have created a system that serves the profit of the few instead of the common good.
This dire situation can only change with unity among all those groups who have the common good at heart. Our battle cry will be: Enough is enough – we demand environmental and planning reform NOW!
All groups around Malta and Gozo, both formal and informal, can endorse this protest by contacting us on firstname.lastname@example.org or filling in the online form on this website www.xebbajtuna.org. Groups can include non-governmental organisations as well as residents, students, workers and farmers: all non-partisan groups whose aims are in line with the demands of the protest are invited to join.
