Taking to social media, Nationalist MP Darren Carabott issued a moment of silence for the victims of various social issues over which ‘a lot of talk has taken place, but not much substantial action.’
Darren highlighted the issues of drug and substance abuse, domestic violence, air and environmental pollution, endangered workers, dangerous driving and traffic fatalities as well as the taboo over mental health.
Having addressed the issues through flash cards, the MP said it is better to actually break the silence about these topics which he argued are only addressed when something bad happens.
‘When something happens, everyone speaks about it. After a while, everything moves on. Before we find a solution, we must first admit that these problems have been with us and are still growing’, said the MP.
He urged people not to put down people who are actively talking about these various subjects and that it is useless to perceive Malta as a ‘modern country’ when there are basic issues which lack any control.
‘And if those who are supposed to do something about these issues doesn’t want to listen, we should raise our voices higher so that they hear us’.
‘If we take action today, we can save a life today. Tomorrow may be too late’, finished Carabott.
