Should there be a monument to commemorate the Interdiction?

During the programme Dissett which discussed the 100 year history of the Labour Party, the Interdiction and whether a monument should be built to commemorate this part of Maltese history, were also discussed.

Jacky Mercieca is of the belief that in Malta there should be such a  monument, while Prof. Simon Mercieca said that the PL has every right to build a monument but it should not be paid for by the state.

Mark Camilleri said that the religious conflict between the PL and the Church in the 60s is a very important event, because it marked the social division and suffering which Labour supporters endured during that time. Within this context, he said that a monument should be built and be paid for by the state.

Prof Domenic Fenech said that before discussing whether or not a monument should be built, an analysis of the quality of national monuments in the country should be made, some of which, in his opinion, are ugly.
