It has become a common sight to see immigrants working as waste collectors, with building contractors and similar. Jobs which are normally considered as involving hard work or are not so desireable. Why is this so? Immigrants are not people of a lesser status. The question is, are these people at least being employed as required by law? Or are they unregistered and being given less then the minimum wage or have longer working hours?

All living things need some place to live. Unfortunately people produce a lot of waste and it can end up effecting the natural environment. In this case, this flushing dumped carelessly in Wied l-Infern, limits of Żebbuġ is an eyesore to all the hikers and drivers passing by. It’s true that small animals such as mice, rats or snakes and even insects can use this flushing as a shelter yet it will always remain an eyesore and it will stay there for years on end unless it is removed. Yet, it is worth noting that there is even worse and highly damaging litter, such as car batteries and other old or broken home appliances carelessly disposed of in abandoned fields or valleys. Humans must not be careless and should do there best to preserve the natural environment.

What is a water pump doing in the countryside, dumped carelessly outside a field? This pump could have been easily disposed of at the civic amenity site instead of actually dumped in the open air. Just imagine the metal pump growing roots stretching beneath and on top of the soil. This pump is just a representative of all the other dumped rubbish found in the countryside. One must consider the fact that it takes an extremely long time for this metal to deteriorate one day. People must not be careless and preserve the environment by making abiding by the 3Rs all the way.

Aħna ngħixu f’dinja miżgħuda b’diversita’, fejn il-karattru, l-apparenza, it-talenti u l-personalitajiet jagħmluna unċi mill-kumplament ta’ madwarna. F’pajjiż demokratiku fejn hu msemmi għal ugwaljanza u tolleranza, huwa kapaċi jaċċetta nies b’karnaġjon differenti? Il-personalita’ jew l-apparenza qed taffetwa lilna l-Maltin? Possibli qatt ma’ ltqajna ma’ nies ta’ l-istess kulur tal-ġilda li jitkellmu b’mod goff, stramb jew ikunu egoisti? Nistaw nitfaw lil kulħadd taħt l-istess keffa? Fejn huma il-valuri bħal rispett, solidarjeta’ u tolleranza? L-ingredjenti ewlenin f’soċjeta serena huma l-għaqda, il-paċi u l-aċċettazzjoni.

Xlendi is one of Gozo’s prime tourist resorts. Until very recently it has become the home to a significant number of immigrants who arrived in Malta in search of a better life. Every day early in the morning these migrants start their way on foot to work. As Leon Brown says, “Never give up hope. Situations can change overnight, and problems can dissolve in the light of a new day’s sun”.
