At a civil society action near the Great Siege memorial in Valletta today some hecklers told activists “you’ve gone too far”. The action was a silent protest that involved hanging a banner, laying flowers and placing candles. No molotov cocktail in sight. And yet they say it is “too far” because it carries the temerity to challenge the great Joseph.

We told the hecklers they should brush up on their own rights and gave them this.
