Three Years for Daphne: A crowdfunding appeal

Repubblika, #occupyjustice and will be marking the 3rd anniversary of Daphne Caruana Galizia’s assassination by renewing their call for truth and justice.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we have had to come up with activities and events that will take place online in order to avoid mass gatherings. Because of this, we are sustaining significant production costs in our endeavours to properly honour Daphne and her work and we have therefore set up a crowdfunding campaign to partially cover these costs.

The campaign can be accessed here:

Donations to Repubblika, gratefully received, will help us to pay for part of the production costs incurred in the making of the documentary (which will be screened on various online platforms and TV stations), the production and projection of the audio-visual art exhibition in Great Siege Square Valletta, and also the promotion of the full programme of events.

The total cost for these events is €12,000 and we are therefore aiming to collect €6,000 via this crowd-funding action, with the rest to be covered by funds raised during past events.

The following is the programme of events:
