    Civil Union The Malta Parliament’s vote in favour of a law to institutionalise civil union, as a marriage between same sex persons, was a welcome development. I always considered this to be the next step forward. Meanwhile, I followed how children’s rights were to be...
  • Health & Safety… whose responsibility is it?

  • Candidate

    Date: Thu, 10/04/2014 - 09:42

    Candidate On Wednesday, I handed in my application to contest the European Parliament elections in May. This was a very significant moment from my point of view: the last time I stood as a candidate was in the 2008 general elections – already six years down the line.

    Minorities At a household I was visiting in Buskett, the head of the family told me: Defend minorities! He surprised me. I realized how some minorities in Malta are suddenly experiencing a certain fear. Despite the commitment of the Labour administration to establish a...
