The Maltese Community Council of NSW is holding the Sette Giugno commemoration at the Maltese Bicentenary Monument in Civic Park, Pendle Hill.
The commemoration will be held on Sunday 6 June from 11am. It includes a commemorative speech about this historic event and musical segments by the Maltese Concert Band NSW and the Maltese Cultural Association Choir.
After being unable to hold this event in 2020, we are glad to be in position to publicly recognise this important day for the Maltese community.
Sette Giugno – ‘Seventh of June’ in Italian – is a Maltese national holiday that remembers events that occurred on that day in 1919. During protests and riots over increasing hardship and other political instability, British troops fired into the protesting Maltese, killing four: Lorenzo Dyer from Vittoriosa, Giuseppe Bajada from Gozo, Emmanuele Attard from Sliema and Carmelo Abela from Valletta.
Civic Park is located along Targo Rd, Pendle Hill.
This is a Covid Safe event. Please scan the QR Code on arrival and follow the Park Wardens’ instructions.
Please Note: In the event of bad weather the event will be cancelled and an update will be posted on the Maltese Community Council of NSW’s Facebook page prior to scheduled start time.
