ADZ – Malta Green Youth has called on MEPA to halt further development in Wied il-Ghasel during next Thursday’s appeal. As the last remaining natural valley passing through a village-centre, which MEPA itself lists as an area of ecological importance, the valley should be protected accordingly.
Reuben Zammit, chairperson of ADZ, stated: “Irreversible damage has
already been done to the valley. Further incursions would deprive us
of yet another of our few remaining undeveloped areas and of what
little is left of our countryside and natural waterways. We therefore
join Alternattiva Demokratika, Nature Trust and Harsien Patrimonju
Mosti in clamouring for an end to this madness. MEPA cannot possibly
ignore the objections of 24,000 Maltese who hold the valley at heart.”
Last Sunday, around 20 individuals joined ADZ in an extensive tour of
the valley lasting over four hours. The tour was conducted by a
professional guide who pointed out the natural as well as historical
beauties of the valley and contrasted them with the man-made scar that the contested development constitutes.
Place: Starting from City Gate, Valletta. We will walk to Blata l-Bajda where the circus is stationed.
A circus boasting of its use of many wild animals in its shows is visiting Malta. This is plain and simple animal cruelty. Wild animals in circuses suffer torture to learn the performance of ‘tricks’ and are kept in small cages for their whole life.
Say NO to animal cruelty! Be there!
