Daphne Caruana Galizia’s remembrance continues two years after her assassination on 16th October 2017. Yesterday, a photographic exhibition capturing just this opened at the European Parliament building in Brussels.
Organised by Maltese MEP David Casa, who addressed the opening ceremony alongside EP President David Maria Sassoli, the event hopes to commemorate her work and life.
The opening ceremony was also addressed by local actress-cum-activist Pia Zammit as well as Thomas Gibson from the Committee to Protect Journalists and other MEPs and Repubblika executive committee member Alessandra Dee Crespo.
The exhibition runs until this Friday, the 18th of October.
Showcased works are all collated from a number of Maltese photographers who covered everything from the breaking stories of her assassination to the protests in her name.
“Daphne Caruana Galizia‘s voice lives on through the courageous journalists who have continued her work.”
Those were the words David Casa used to summarise the current standing in Daphne’s story.
“It is our job to make sure that investigative journalists can do their job free from harassment and intimidation. Always.”
Vigils are taking place in the journalist’s honour across Europe for the two-year anniversary of the tragic event, including places like Brussels, London, Berlin and Vienna.
Tomorrow evening will see a protest march through the capital of Malta, Valletta.
