Save Marsascala! Activists organise cultural walk to raise awareness against yacht marina
Exercise and activism – what’s not to love?

Emma Galea

Last August, proposals for the construction of a yacht marina in Marsascala were made public – and it’s safe to say that many people weren’t happy.

Amongst those opposing the development were council member John Baptist Camilleri, who even called such plans ‘suicide to our village’, and activist group Moviment Graffitti.

In protest against the construction of the yacht marina, Moviment Graffitti are now organising a cultural walk to educate attendees about what stands to be lost, should the yacht marina be built.

The walk will be taking place this Sunday 10th November at 10am and will be taking participants all around Wied il-Ghajn Bay to learn more about the village’s rich history.

Ruben Abela, Architect and President of the Wirt iz-Zejtun organisation, will also be joining the walk to recount notable stories about the area.

Moviment Graffitti said that this event will give participants the “opportunity to appreciate all that will be gone if the proposition by Transport Malta is enacted, as every inch of the bay and harbour will be taken over by the rich.”

Will you be joining?
