It is not a case of 'right time' or 'right place', if we had to wait for the right time and place to protest, we will never protest. If there was a right time and place, we wouldn't need to protest. If people are criticising us, it is even more reason to go ahead with this, we need to show everyone that we do have a right to feel safe, that we do need hate-crime legislation.
The Malta Gay Rights Movement (MGRM) together with Drachma Parents LGBT Labour We Are- University of Malta LGBTQQI Student Society Drachma aditus Integra Moviment Graffitti ADZ Malta - Green Youth
will be holding a peaceful demonstration on Thursday 26th January at 7.30pm at Hamrun Square (Pjazza San Pawl).
The aim of the demonstration is to protest against all forms of hate crime and to ask the government to extend the current hate crime legislation to include other potentially vulnerable groups.
Please bring along candles and feel free to make placards!
