Moviment Graffitti activists and others joining their cause woke up in the Mosta square this morning after having camped out at the construction site in an ongoing demonstration.
The activists are protesting the removal and relocation of the ficus trees in the square, which were set to be replaced by indigenous trees.
‘The square is beautiful, but it’s not the most comfortable site to sleep in’, wrote the activist group.
Moviment Graffitti reiterated the call for people to join them once again today at 1830hrs for an official protest against the removal of the trees. Yesterday, the group even saw the temporary arrest of Andre Callus, prompting even a response by the Minister for Internal Affairs Byron Camilleri and Prime Minister Robert Abela.
Many joined the activists yesterday during their stay at the site, with the group saying that they have been filled with courage over the solidarity they have experienced.
