As political mass rallies continue to welcome thousands of individuals with little to no COVID-19 restrictions in place, a number of local communities have expressed their frustration with the restrictions that remain in place for their everyday practice.
During a recent graduation ceremony, a graduand criticised political parties and leaders for the inconsistency in COVID-19 regulation, as relatives were forced to watch the graduation from a big screen in a separate hall. While thanking the University of Malta for the effort made to organise such ceremonies, the student argued that political leaders are not following these same rules.
Elsewhere, a local platform for parents by the name of ‘Island Bebe Malta’ published a video titled ‘Unmask the kids’ which features young schoolchildren expressing their day-to-day difficulties brought about by wearing masks at school. Some students stated that the masks they are being forced to wear are suffocating while others expressed that they don’t remember the they were mask-less at school.
“Meanwhile, mass public events are happening all over the island”, the video stated as it went on to appeal to the relevant authorities that it is time to unmask their children.
