Over 10,000 signatures to preserve open spaces collected

A petition started by the Outdoor Recreation and Camping Association Malta aimed at protecting public access to l-Aħrax and Miżieb has garnered over 10,000 signatures.

The petition which has been endorsed by a newly formed coalition made up of non-governmental organisations and other informal group, dubbed Spazji Miftuħa, is demanding that access to l-Aħrax and Miżieb remains open all throughout the year instead of being sealed off to a lobby for nine out of twelve months.

So far 30 groups have endorsed the coalition and its demands.

The coalition has also made a request for a meeting which to date remained unanswered prompting a second letter as a reminder.
