Where were the Front activists in the past? A reply
To those ultra-partisans who seem to adopt selective memory in asking Front Harsien ODZ core activists where we were years ago, I reply that many of us, such as James Debono, David Pisani and myself have been active in many environmental campaigns since the 1990s, some of which were successful.
Others are younger but have been active for some years and yet others recently took the brave step to be active to save what is left. Others are still in time to be active to protect the environment, a common good which has no party-political or financial affiliation.
Incidentally two of my 3 sociology theses- (State/Power: Hiltonopoly, BA Hons, 1998, and EU accession and civil society empowerment - the case of Maltese ENGOs, PhD, 2013) - as well as academic papers and dozens of newspaper articles which I have written deal with environmental politics, so I invite the skeptics to check them out and find ample documentation on this.
