    IN MEMORIAM:

    Two years to the day and we remember another brave soul whose life was taken from her whilst in the pursuit of truth, and, simply just doing her job. I saw her beautiful and serene memorial in Valletta recently, and was greatly moved.

    From Wikipedia: Daphne Anne Caruana Galizia was a Maltese journalist, writer, and anti-corruption activist, who reported on political events in Malta.

    Here's her final post on her notebook which isn't otherwise remarkable save for it being her final entry; how soon that was posted before she was assassinated is *unknown. (UPDATE - Oct 18th: believed to have been 3pm - Tintin Quarantino)

    I'm in the process of pulling together as much information about her, and her incredible work, to include here on the forum and in the library as well.

    It was heartbreaking when it happened. It was all over the news.

    IN PHOTOS: Thousands Gather In Valletta Protest Marking Two Years Since Daphne Caruana Galizia’s Unsolved Assassination By Julian Bonnici

    October 16, 2019 at 8:00 pm

    Thousands of people took to the streets of Malta’s capital to demand truth and justice on the two year anniversary of the assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia in a protest led by her entire family.

    While three men have been charged, the masterminds behind the brutal murder remain at large.

    Her sons, husband, mother, father, sisters, and nieces led thousands down Republic Street, with the crowds chanting “justice” as they marched, laying down flowers at the Great Siege Memorial, now a makeshift shrine for Caruana Galizia.

    “The situation is still desperate,” placards said, in a reference to Caruana Galizia’s now-infamous last words. (People on social media have picked up on her final words, noting how timely and stirring they were, with commenters sharing her fitting final words across multiple platforms.)
