Tributes to assassinated journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia left at the Great Siege Monument opposite the law courts were removed in the dead of night once again.
Justice campaigners meet at the site on the 16th of every month to commemorate Caruana Galizia’s murder and to remind the country that justice has still not yet been delivered.
But within hours, practically every month, the candles, flowers and posters left on the site are cleared by the Cleansing Department.
“No one who does not look at the world through blinkers could possibly say that the cleansing department is showing respect to the monument. Or that it is more beautiful this morning that it was last night,” said Occupy Justice on Facebook. “As usual, the memorial was reinstated this morning, as you can see from our cover photo. And we go on.”
During yesterday’s vigil, campaigners also put up a poster of Daphne Caruana Galizia’s face with the caption ‘Invicta’ in a reaction to last week’s news that Prime Minister Joseph Muscat got a tattoo on his bicep of the word ‘Invictus’, which is Latin for undefeated.
