Triton Square is already packing up fast with people, predominantly youths, with hours to go before this afternoon’s mass meeting.
There is a party atmosphere at the rally and many people have turned up wearing T-shirts inspired by vlogger Nas Daily.
It is traditional for the Labour Party to hold a mass meeting on 1st May (Workers’ Day), but this year’s event is noteworthy in that it will be held for the first time at the newly-revamped Triton Square outside Valletta. Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, who is expected to address the crowds at around 5:30pm, has urged his supporters to attend the rally in droves to send a response to The Daphne Project and government critics.
