I'd like to see more people voicing their concerns on such insensitive works. All reports to media and authorities and local councils have been lodged from our side but other voices are very welcome!
Its easy to publish / make our voices heard and then its also easy to copy the link and email it to several authorities, local councils, etc both locally and also to foreign authorities.
So please support this topic maybe things starts shaking!
I agree with you that our mentality is still far behind from Eu objectives and well lets face it, if there is no law enforcment, there will be no mentality change. To enforce Law you need to patrol such sites, but when we start seeing the green wardens stationed in such sites? Its a chain reaction.
It happened that I was at weid Babu at that time and I heard the workers shouting from abobe
"Zuru ghax qed inadfu" = "move away since we are cleaning"
and then I heard noises of things falling down in the valley and trees. Actually they were not cleaning but dirtying the valley. But well what counts is that the contractor saved some money from transporting the rubble to an adequate site.
yes the rubble thrown on the garigue shows exactly our crude bulldozer methods when we go for such dubious " embellishment".
Where is MEPA Environment Protection in all this ? Dont they read the papers and does no one from this institution ever drive past the place to have a look at the sort of embellishment being perpetrated just below the four lane pavement ??
hope u are not the one with the double personality
speaking of which - am really pissed off as i LOST ALL PHOTOS i took on the day! i need to find a sponsor for a decent camera! now its too late for the coronilla and the other plant i guess...
joking...yes i thought it was you espeically whne i saw wied incita mentioned a bit often i still have to go there by the way! unless i wait till i get locked up for going crazy about this insane country...
The matter was reported to mepa and to press but we never got any feedback except from council who of course are happy with the project.
On another note i got to know that an enforcement notice had been issued (possibly aftre our report ) but cant understand what happened after as works continued as usual.
well, just the usual story
When I came to settle in Malta I always lived in Zurrieq and by chance had quite some time to explore the village and its vicinity. Of course I coundn't miss Wied Babu. And I even started to recommend my friends and familiars to find time and go down this valley as its really something special. I always wanted to re-convince people who are sure that Malta is a barren piece of rock, that actually it can be very alive and green in some parts. Soon my "promotion" will be all over, unfortunately. I am very, very sad.

the council told me that residents are all for this project and very happy with it bla bla bla
i think most people see me as an extremist and dismiss my letters but it would be good to have new voices heard am trying to convince my mum to write as well as the first time she came to malta she immediately loved this valley and also brought her own mother when she was in malta to the same valley.i took her down there some time ago despite the fact that she is now a bit old and she was angry at how it was transformed - similarly to what happend some years ago to wied zurrieq when the concrete "garden" was conbstucted over the garigue
Just to point out that one can copy the URL (topic link address) of this topic and email it to the council so seeing that this is not an individual letter, but something seen by hundreds / thousands of people will make them more concerned.
You can copy the link from the "Address" at the top of the Internet Explorer when vieweing the particular post. this one should be:
http://maltawildplants.com/forum/viewto ... =2187#2187
So the trick is that you can write to local council your letter or email and additionally include the link and tell them that the news is spread over internet and rad by many!
If you plan to do so tell me so that I clear this entry. (it will be cleared automatically in 3 days)
