Professional events organisers fuming after Hamrun celebrations

Professional events organisers fuming after Hamrun celebrations
Jul 2 2021 Share

Following the celebrations which took place in Hamrun yesterday evening, the general public and the professional events organisers were left utterly fuming. This comes after an organised demonstration by several artists and events organisers was shut down and forced to take place live online. This portal reached out to the President of the Malta Entertainment Industry and Arts Association Howard Keith Debono. 

He first congratulated Hamrun who, since having the blessing of the police and respective authorities, he would have done exactly the same. He however went on to ask why the arts and events industry is being discriminated against. ‘As it stands illegal gatherings have a better chance of happening than anyone trying to do things the proper safe way. The message given out is ALL WRONG and above all ILLOGICAL’ he stated. 

DJ Joven Grech also spoke out against this apparent discrimination. He pointed out how the organisers of a pacifist demonstration were about to be fined €6000 each following 17 months being refrained from doing what they love. 

Joven pointed out that people did not get the vaccine to satisfy tourists and some businesses but because they want their life back. He went on to say that he has been the ambassador of Malta through his work abroad but Malta did not return the favour. 

Many of the general public also expressed their concerns as many people could not organise their dream wedding in a controlled environment.
