 - Local - Oct 31 SHARE ON:

Members of 60 different NGOs making part of the ‘Spazji Miftuħa’ coalition have gathered in front of Castille to protest the government’s mistreatment of environmental issues.

Representatives of the coalition have stated that it is unacceptable that the Aħrax and Miżieb woodlands were just handed over to hunters.

They have appealed for the Prime Minister’s understanding of the selfish act which only benefits 300 hunters as opposed to the 30,400 people that signed a petition against the agreement.
