PN youth wing ‘Team Start’ set up deckchairs this morning in front of Parliament as a form of symbolic protest, accusing Prime Minister Robert Abela and Speaker Anglu Farrugia of choosing to enjoy their summer holidays instead of getting down to serious business.
Their protest came as a response to Farrugia’s decision not to reconvene Parliament from its summer recess to discuss a no-confidence motion in Edward Zammit Lewis that the PN had proposed.
The group of youths, ages ranging from 14-18 years old, gathered in Valletta today to replicate a beach scene, as a way of satirically communicating that the matters should be taken more seriously.
The youth organisation spoke out stressing that “Malta should be working day and night to get the country off the greylist.”
Lovin Malta also spoke to TeamStart president Eve Borg Bonello, who led this morning’s demonstration.
“Us students are expecting that those in power be working day and night, seven days a week, to fix the current grey-listing crisis that the country is in, and to implement all of the recommendations from the public inquiry into Daphne Caruana Galizia’s murder.”
“They also killed a journalist, in return for a power station that does not even work, while we are in this tremendous heat.”
The demonstration is currently still going on in Valletta.
Do you agree with the decision taken by parliament?
