National environment protest

May 27, 2023 @ 10:30 - 12:00 CEST

Xebbajtuna! Bidla fl-Ambjent u l-Ippjanar ISSA!

Eight organisations are today announcing a national protest demanding urgent environmental and planning reform. The protest titled Xebbajtuna! Bidla fl-Ambjent u l-Ippjanar ISSA! will be held on Saturday 27 May 2023, starting from the Triton Fountain at 10.30am.

Besides urging the general public to participate, the organisations are also inviting groups around Malta and Gozo, both formal and informal, to endorse the protest by sending an email on info@xebbajtuna.org or filling in the online form on the website www.xebbajtuna.org. Groups can include non-governmental organisations as well as residents, students, workers and farmers: all non-partisan groups whose aims are in line with the demands of the protest are invited to join.

In this national protest, the organisations will demand the following immediate actions:
1. to change planning policies – such as those allowing buildings on ODZ, the height and intensity of buildings, the height of hotels, and the scheduling of sites of historic interest and value – in order to stop the wave of construction that does not respect context, heritage, natural environment, farmers and residents;
2. to radically reform all institutions responsible for the environment, planning and lands, so that they start functioning in a serious and transparent manner and independently from politicians and businesses;
3. to build an economic model that seeks a better quality of life for everyone instead of endless economic growth based on the profits of the few.

The organisations launching the protest are: Moviment Graffitti, Friends of the Earth Malta, Flimkien għal Ambjent Aħjar, Din l-Art Ħelwa, Nature Trust Malta-FEE, Għawdix, BirdLife Malta and Ramblers’ Association Malta.
