Ghalkemm xi hadd rema l-konkrit fil-hamrija, li hi xi haga hazina hafna, xorta wahda din il-fjura selvagga telghet issebbah il-post flimkien ma’ fjuri ohra bhala. Importanti li ma narmux fil-hamrija u l-hamrija li jkollna niehdu hsiebha biex ma tintremiex u tinhela

Importanti li nhallu l-fjuri jikbru ghax sbieh. Il-fjuri ma naqtawhomx u ma nghaffgux fil-hamrija jhalli jkunu jistghu jikbru u jsebbhu l-ambjent. Il-fjara hu selvagga u mhux hazina, miskina.

It is a house in a sad state. Apart from being an immediate eye sore in the otherwise picturesque fishing village of Marsaxlokk, it also poses a constant threat to those who dare walk along that pavement; which most people do. Sitting at the very edge of the sea front, it is inevitable despite the risks; and on Sunday during the market; visitors couldn’t care less, in spite of the very visible physical deterioration of the building; such as the demolished balcony, the lack of doors, the hanging-by-a-thread lamppost or the much eroded globigerina which composes it.

Pictures speak a thousand words; and this one could be heard shouting not to pass from underneath that balcony. Three balconies in succession all face the same fate as their wrought iron mesh is exposed; making it more liable to damage by weather conditions which speed up its erosion. If it worsens; the balcony could and might as well collapse. No more could be stated than what is seen in the picture; a despicable sight which has been present for years now… yet which no one cared about enough to fix. Also, it is worthwhile noting that these balconies are found in a restaurant; which is open on the weekends and their balconies are easily accessible to their customers. The state of these balconies cannot support the people, and it seems that until something tragic occurs, no action is going to be taken.

Plant a tree in the gravel

This scene is not a one-off extracted from the delving depths of our country’s worst, but rather a common view in the south of Malta. Perfectly healthy trees are strewn apart and dumped into this compostal site which houses more than just dead trees. It also provides a stable habitat for small creatures such as mice and roaches. The environment is being deteriorated in some ways; namely the fact that the lack of these trees from the soil can reduce soil tackiness; resulting in unnecessary water runoff (note picture was taken on sloping ground). This house is perfectly habitable; therefore that is also an aspect one might question rationally; as to why there is an empty house in such a state. Isn’t that loss of ground which could be used beneficially for more humane purposes, such as planting ground or manipulated into a home which people would actually live in?
