While Malta was exempt from the vote, 27 EU states agreed in principle to the voluntary agreement to reduce gas consumption. Dalli highlighted how the swift decision was taken in light of the urgency of the matter.

“The situation is what it is and when you are faced with such a challenging situation, I believe that the options in front of us are either to be prepared for what might happen or let things be and then find a situation which is in your hands which might be major and more massive than you would have actually been able to cater for”, Dalli told the CNN reporter.

Dalli went on to highlight that “it is showing that the EU is preparing itself for any eventualities, even considering also that the next months are definitely not going to be easy.” The Minister concluded a recent social media post by stating that this approach is being taken while attempting to protect Maltese citizens from the negative impact of the increase in energy prices well assuring autonomy and security in the provision of energy.

Jul 28 2022 Share

A 12-year old girl has become a  public hero recently after she performed a passionate speech against the recent US abortion ban. The highlight of her speech for many was when she furiously asked the hearing  “Does my life not matter to you?”

This hearing in West Virginia came after the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Roe v Wade ruling.

In the hearing many activists, religious personnel, citizens and medical professionals were present to showcase their opinion on the contentious subject and  expressing their concerns about abortion policies currently under consideration for the state.

The girl who has now made the rounds on social media is 12-year old Addison Gardner from Buffalo Middle School in Kenova. She told the hearing

“If a man decides that I’m an object, and does unspeakable, tragic things to me, am I, a child, supposed to carry and birth another child? Am I to put my body through the physical trauma of pregnancy? Am I to suffer the mental implications? A child who had no say in what was being done with my body? ”

“Some here say they are pro-life. What about my life? Does my life not matter to you?”
