Anti-mask protestors return to Balluta

A group of anti-mask protestors returned to Balluta on Sunday to continue protesting against the wearing of masks and the Covid-19 vaccine.

The 30 or so strong crowd of protestors were mostly dressed in yellow, and brandished signs speaking out against face-masks and plans for vaccination certificates.

The vast majority of the protestors were not wearing a face-mask.

It is the second such protest in as many weeks, after a small crowd gathered in the same sport last Sunday.

It is currently illegal to leave the house without wearing a face-mask – a measure put in place months ago to stem the tide of Covid-19 cases.

Vaccinations in Malta are not forced and are not compulsory – although Malta leads the way in the vaccination programme across Europe.

Public gatherings of over four people are also currently illegal in Malta.
