Asking our followers on social media whether they want to stay or leave Malta, 54% said they want to leave the island, compared to 46% who want to stay.

Other a swears included the summer weather, the proximity of everything as well as ‘lifestyle’. Some (whether ironically or not, we do not know) cited Kinnie and pastizzi.

Followers were then asked for what makes them want to leave the country. 

Answers varied from Malta being ‘too chaotic’, the traffic and transport issue, lack of green environment, the rising cost of rent, the heat, overpopulation and even ‘boredom.’

Some said that there are more opportunities abroad whilst another referred to their kids’ future. What do you make of all this?

He is currently pleading not guilty. 

The site of the vigil was held at the murder site of 29-year-old Polish student Paulina Dembska, who was killed back in January of 2022. 

Dembska’s murder led to the introduction of femicide into the criminal code. 

In a video shared to Facebook, Mayor John Pillow wrote; ‘The murder of Sandra Ramirez has shocked many in our community and especially our Colombian friends and residents.’

Exams To Go As Planned; UĦM Directives Lifted
Jan 16 2024 Share

Following pressure by KSU’s announcement of a University student rally on campus today, the UĦM directives were lifted and exams announced to be going as planned.

As such, KSU cancelled the lecture walk-out rally, with an official statement saying that pressure for the conclusion of the collective agreement is set to continue.

‘While this development is a cause for celebration among students, KSU wishes to express its profound appreciation for UĦM’s unwavering commitment to defending worker’s rights’, the student organisation wrote. 

KSU extended their wholehearted support to UĦM in its ongoing endeavours to negotiate a better collective agreement. 

‘Nonetheless, we must express our deep disappointment with the government’s negligence regarding workers’ rights over the past two years, a neglect that has compelled the union to take such measures, inadvertently impacting students.’ 

‘Did the situation need to get to this point to get to this stage of the negotiations’, KSU concluded.
