WATCH: Malta Under Siege By Development

Maltese filmmaker's call to arms

As debate on overdevelopment rages in Malta, Pierre Ellul, the filmmaker behind the popular documentary Dear Dom, has released a hard-hitting call to arms.

His video released on Facebook shows a number of places in Malta that have been earmarked for development or the cause of some form of outrage, including the fish farms

The video is the latest effort by people across various sectors to raise awareness about the way things are developing on the island. 

A similar campaign was launched by Din l-Art Helwa, entitled "Stop the Greed".

The campaign is seeking to raise funds to formally appeal the two skyscraper projects approved last month in Sliema and Mriehel. Each appeal with the planning authority costs €3,800. 

Flimkien Għal Ambjent Aħjar also announced their #ACauseWorthFightingFor campaign to finance opposition to some 22 towers planned around Malta.
