An upcoming protest commemorating five months since the assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia will have a witty twist to it and lampoon a recent concert of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat’s favourite songs. 

Protest group Occupy Justice will hold ‘The People’s Playlist’ in Castille Square this Friday at 6:30pm and is inviting people to choose their own songs to be played right outside the Prime Minister’s office.

“You choose the songs and we will play them LOUD and CLEAR to THOSE WHO NEED TO LISTEN,” the event page reads. Bring your family and friends. Stand up and be counted. Join us in reminding the government and all those who are supposed to serve that a journalist was assassinated in Malta. We want justice. Say No to Corruption and Impunity.”

Before the concert, protestors will hold a vigil in front of the law courts and lay flowers and candles by the makeshift memorial to Daphne Caruana Galizia.

The ‘Prime Minister’s Playlist’ concert, organised by the national orchestra, was held over two nights last month and included a variety of songs - from David Bowie and Pink Floyd to Lana del Rey and Coldplay.
