Save Hondoq ir-Rummien

The residents of Qala should unite with Qala’s Labourite Mayor, Paul Buttigieg, the Green Party and various environmental, social and political organisations to convey a united opposition, against the proposed project that will ruin one of the most beautiful natural places of public use in Gozo.
The proposed area is one outside the development zone, mainly frequented by the public both for swimming and hiking purposes. A Referendum conducted amongst the people of Qala shown clearly that 85% of the people disagree with the proposed project.
Government should implement a clear policy for an ‘Eco-Gozo’ that will lead to the rehabilitation of Hondoq ir-Rummien, through public investment, with special attention to the natural environment of the area and the regeneration of the old quarry with the planting of trees.
Zminijietna - Voice of the Left believes that developers are in their interest to portray the project as environmentally sound, but this is very far from reality. The construction of a Yacht Marina at Portomaso resulted in the destruction of a historical wall trench and the area is no longer accessible to the public for swimming and other recreation purposes. The interest of the few is leading to the ruin of the natural beauty of the Maltese Islands. The same will happen in Qala if permit is granted.
Next Thursday, Zminijietna will attend Mepas’ public hearing to give its full support against the destruction of Hondoq ir-Rummien.
