A trio of red billboards have been put up in Malta’s streets ahead of the three-year anniversary of Daphne Caruana Galizia’s assassination tomorrow.
In a series of videos livestreamed to Facebook by Occupy Justice, the billboards – with the messages A Country Robbed, A Journalist Killed and No Prosecutions and all followed by No Justice – can be seen being put up, with at least one of them located in Triq ta’ Żejfa, Mosta.
The action is a callback to a similar move by Occupy Justice back in February 2018, when the group was inspired by the Oscar-nominated film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri as a direct message to then-Prime Minister Joseph Muscat.
“Three Billboards For The Prime Minister – The Return is a reminder to the current Prime Minister Robert Abela and his entire government that the present government is evidently an accomplice of the previous one,” Occupy Justice said in a statement issued shortly after tonight’s action.
Tomorrow marks three years since Caruana Galizia was murdered outside her home, and while COVID-19 might’ve put a temporary halt to protests and vigils, a series of virtual events are still expected to be livestream over the course of the day.
What do you make of this?
