A makeshift memorial for journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia at the Great Siege Monument has been cleared once again, less than 24 hours after thousands gathered in Valletta calling for Prime Minister Joseph Muscat’s immediate resignation.
The makeshift memorial has kept workers from the government’s cleansing department busy over the last two years, with the memorial regularly been cleared away through the night.
The orders come directly from Culture Minister Owen Bonnici, who was recently surrounded by protesters as he attempted to exit Parliament with his car.
“Our citizens’ protest site, was cleared once more, in the dead of night by Joseph Muscat’s henchmen!”
“This is what Joseph Muscat thinks of the thousands who marched asking for his immediate resignation and for truth and justice! He doesn’t give a damm!”
“Our answer to you Joseph, is BARRA. We will not stop until you are brought to justice for your part in the corrupt and murderous dealings done under YOUR watch!” Occupy Justice said.
In a broadcast late last night, Muscat announced that he will remain in his position until a leadership election takes place on 12th January following widespread protests in the country.
Another protest will take place today, starting outside parliament at 4pm before moving to Castille at 6pm, activists are calling for Muscat’s immediate resignation.
