Ħaddiema migranti jitkellmu mal-Arċosqof dwar ħajjithom f’Malta

Iż-żieda sostanzjali fil-kiri tal-propjetà kif ukoll l-emozzjonijiet ta’ ferħ imma fl-istess ħin ta’ ansjetà li jħossu mindu ġew jgħixu f’Malta kienu fost l-affarijiet li l-ħaddiema migranti qasmu mal-Arċisqof Charles Scicluna fit-30 ta’ April 2024, lejlet il-festa ta’ San Ġużepp Ħaddiem.

Diversi migranti mis-Saħara t’Isfel u mill-Afrika tal-Punent kif ukoll mill-Asja t’Isfel u tax-Xlokk li nġabru fil-Kurja tal-Arċisqof fil-Furjana, irringrazzjaw lill-Arċisqof talli laqagħhom bħala missier, filwaqt li rrikonoxxew ir-rwol tal-Knisja bħala difensur tad-dinjità tal-ħaddiema… Kompli aqra »

Ġustizzja mal-ħaddiema: drittijiet, dinjità u kwalità ta’ ħajja aħjar

Is-sistema ekonomika Maltija hija mibnija fuq l-isfruttament tal-ħaddiema.

It-tkabbir ekonomiku ta’ dawn l-aħħar snin kellu jtejjeb il-kwalità tal-ħajja tal-ħaddiema. Minflok, qegħdin f’sitwazzjoni fejn ħafna jgħixu fuq pagi baxxi, jaħdmu bil-prekarjat, u f’kundizzjonijiet ħżiena. Għalhekk nemmnu li għandna nimxu lejn mudell ekonomiku mibni fuq il-ġustizzja soċjali.

Nhar l-1 ta’ Mejju, Jum il-Ħaddiem, tnehdiet il-kampanja “Ġustizzja mal-Ħaddiema”, bil-preżentazzjoni ta’ dokument li tfassal sabiex inkunu nistgħu nimxu lejn sistema ekonomika mibnija fuq il-ġustizzja soċjali… Kompli aqra »

Hekk kif qed tavvanza l-intelliġenza artifiċjali, inħarsu d-dinjità tal-ħaddiema 

On this year’s Workers’ Day, the Justice and Peace Commission emphasises the critical need to address the implications of generative AI technologies on the workplace and workers’ livelihoods. With forecasts indicating that AI adoption may affect up to 60% of jobs in advanced economies such as Malta’s[1], the Commission highlights the urgency for society and policymakers to come up with proactive measures to ensure that technological progress benefits all, safeguarding against disproportionate advantages for a select few while potentially disadvantaging many… Kompli aqra »

What happened to second chance?

Last week, just as people in Valletta were celebrating the arrival on our shores of St Paul, another person who landed on our shores was unwillingly removed from our midst.

The story of Kusi sheds light on the harsh realities faced by many. In a world rife with complexities and contradictions, one of the starkest injustices lies in the treatment of migrants who are violently uprooted from a place they have settled in and call home… Kompli aqra »

Stabilità, mhux inċertezza

Aħna, bħala migranti li ilna għal żmien twil ngħixu u naħdmu f’Malta, qed ningħaqdu flimkien biex nitolbu li f’ħajjitna jkollna sens ta’ stabilità, u mhux inċertezza. Fid-dawl ta’ avvenimenti riċenti u sfidi kontinwi li tiffaċċja l-komunità tal-migranti, qed nasserixxu d-drittijiet tagħna u qed insejħu għal azzjoni urġenti min-naħa tal-awtoritajiet. Aħna ġejna Malta snin ilu, hekk kif ħallejna warajna sitwazzjonijiet problematiċi immens fil-pajjiżi ta’ oriġini tagħna… Kompli aqra »

25 għaqda lokali qed jagħmlu sejħa lill-awtoritajiet Maltin biex jipprevjenu aktar ksur tad-drittijiet tal-bniedem u mwiet fil-Baħar Mediterran.

Il-Baħar Mediterran jibqa’ wieħed mill-aktar spazju bejn il-fruntieri fatali fid-dinja. Għexieren ta’ eluf ta’ nies mietu jew sfaw nieqsa meta ppruvaw jaqsmu l-Mediterran. Mill-inqas 3,041(1)  persuna mietu fil-Baħar Mediterran fl-2023, li għamel din is-sena waħda mill-aktar fatali. Ir-Rotta tal-Mediterran Ċentrali, mit-Tuneżija u l-Libja għal Malta u l-Italja, hija partikolarment perikoluża… Kompli aqra »

Bi tħejjija għall-Ġubilew tas-Sena 2025 ‘Pelleġrini ta’ Tama’, is-sena 2024 ġiet magħżula bħala s-Sena ta’ Talb mill-Papa Franġisku.

F’dan ir-Randan, ser nimxu ma’ Kristu fuq il-vjaġġ tal-passjoni tiegħu u niftakru f’ħutna madwar id-dinja kif ukoll lil dawk li għandna f’pajjiżna stess li ta’ kuljum jgħaddu minn sofferenza, faqar u inġustizzji.

Seventy-five years later Justice and Peace Europe wishes to underline the enduring importance of this document. The Universal Declaration, together with the encyclical letter Pacem in Terris, published 60 years ago, inspires us in our mission to promote human rights.

Fix-xbieha ta’ Alla li jħobb u jħenn

In the last days much has been written about comments made on the national station with regards to disabilities as fruit of original sin. I, myself have struggled with this Biblical narrative for several years. However, the Church’s teaching shows us that such an approach provides a shallow reading of what is meant by ‘perfection/imperfection’ in the creation story.

When we view people with disabilities as “unperfect” or inferior, we risk embracing a utilitarian view of humanity… Kompli aqra »
