Posted by on Saturday, September 7, 2019

Hundreds turned out to a national protest which was endorsed by more than 50 non-governmental organisation and informal groups on Saturday morning.

Among those who addressed the activists were Wayne Flask, Anthea Brincat, Jeanette Borg, Ingram Bondin and Mark Sultana.

Organised by Moviment Graffitti, Friends of the Earth Malta, GreenHouse, Merill Rural Network, Attard Residents Environmental Network, BirdLife Malta, Nature Trust, Flimkien Għal Ambjent Aħjar, Kamp Emerġenza Ambjent and Din l-Art Ħelwa, the protest dubbed Iż-Żejjed Kollu Żejjed, (Enough is enough), started in front of the law courts.

The activists have put forward six demands ahead of Saturday’s protest, which include a radical change in planning policies, stringent regulation of the construction industry, a transport strategy which would create a modal shift, among others.

Minister for the Environment, Sustainable Development and Climate Change José Herreras stated on Twitter that he has taken note of all the messages which delivered during the protest. He added that although Government is carrying out its political programme, it is of great importance to continue hearing what the public has to say.
