Three quick points to kickstart your day.
Remember? Here's the full article to refresh your memory. Thanks once again to BugM.
I cannot be at the protest tonight because I don't live in Malta. But I shall be there in spirit, as I am every 16th of every month when people gather to protest corruption which saw a journalist assassinated. I'll be listening to this music as I think of you. In you Malta has hope. …
It's a shame that Moviment Graffitti are complicit in attempting to paint this as a partisan protest (thereby aiding and abetting the Labour party narrative) by pointedly deciding not to attend. But, and make no mistake about this, that is indeed what they are doing.
This has to be the most impotent, lifeless, opposition in Maltese history.
Similarly the Soviet state of Malta is struggling to cover up the melt down of its democratic institutions and rule of law. Malta's government issues its state propaganda but, as with Russia, no one in the Western world believes it. The noise emitting from Joseph Muscat's administration is precisely that ... noise. The incredulity was highlighted in Pieter Omzigt's PACE report on the state capture of its institutions, and Irish Sinn Fein Senator Paul Gavan had to stand up and say to Malta "when you're in a hole, stop digging".
So my sources were correct, there is a smear campaign being conducted against me, although it hasn't made it into the media, relegated instead to furtive messages on Twitter and Facebook. Perhaps because I pre-empted it in an earlier post? But more likely because none of the accusations actually stand up to scrutiny.
Keep your eyes peeled, because it sounds like there's a story being concocted about me in an effort to smear Occupy Justice (and indeed any civil society group or activist campaigning for clean governance) that may do the rounds on government media soon.
You don’t know me, and I don’t know most of you, but together we are storytellers. And the story we are telling is that of Malta and the Maltese.
This is the seventh in a series of posts celebrating the women fighting for positive change in our world. Today I'm talking to Alessandra Dee Crespo another member of Occupy Justice Malta.
