Civil society protests are set to continue in January, with rule of law NGO Repubblika and pressure group Occupy Justice calling a national protest for 5 January.

In a statement on Saturday morning, the NGOs said that they are calling for a national protest ‘to call for justice on the corrupt, the thieves and the murderers that have captured our country’.

The NGOs voiced their anger and concern at what is happening in the country, saying that ‘it is clear to everyone that this pretence that everything is normal is really a cover-up for the institutional collapse of our democracy.’

Repubblika also announced that it is convening a general meeting for its members to discuss its vision for a new Malta on 11 January 2020.

The organisations said that more detail for both events will be announced at a closer date.
