AD slams Hondoq plans

Alternattiva Demokratika yesterday said that the Hondoq ir-Rummien project was “nothing but an attempt to take over public land and turn it into an area for private use.”
AD’s spokesperson for sustainable development Carmel Cacopardo said that “the proposed development is still based on the taking over by land speculators of land currently used for leisure activities of common folk.”
AD’s chairperson Michael Briguglio said that the government had merely copied AD’s vision for Eco-Gozo in the last election, but the project was proof of “a huge difference between copying a plan and actually acting upon it.”
AD’s spokesperson for Gozo Victor Galea said that “an increasing number of foreigners are now being employed at low wages which as a result is squeezing out Gozitan workers.” He insisted that the Greens would have ensured that the derelict quarry of the area would have been transformed into a park, complemented with an afforestation project.
