Signs have begun to appear near the woodlands around Saqqaja in Rabat, presumably in preparation of tomorrow’s protest where more than 600 members of the public will stand their ground against the felling of trees in the area.

The signs, printed both in English and Maltese, read “dawn is-siġar mhux se jitneħħew” which translates to “these trees will not be removed”.

English printings read “these trees are here to stay” and have been placed bus stops and street signs to alert the public of which trees are safe from the chop.

Tomorrow’s protest was organised by 19-year-old Sasha Vella, a student and artist, who decided to organise the action after growing tired of the disregard she feels the Maltese environment receives.
