Sette Giugno (from Italian for "Seventh of June") is a Maltese national holiday celebrated annually on 7 June. It commemorates events which occurred on that day in 1919 when, following a series of riots by the Maltese population, British troops fired into the crowd, killing four. This led to increased resistance and support for the pro-Italian parties that had challenged the British presence on the island. [source]
Yesterday Malta was supposed to celebrate this National Feast (one of five National Feasts)
However; lately this Important Day in our history is starting to being neglected and given less importance for no reason... In fact our 69 representatives in Parliament celebrated it alone in front of the monument (which was removed from its original place were the killings occured to a garden) 2 days before the actual day.
However there is a general agreement to re-allocate the monument next to the newly build Parliament. This is because this day was the catalyst which lead to our Independence from the British Colonialist on Sept. 21st 1964.
