Opposition Leader Joseph Muscat said yesterday there was no such thing as first-, second- and third-class national feasts and that they were all links in the chain that made the nation what it was today.

Speaking at the foot of the Freedom Monument in Vittoriosa in the run-up to Freedom Day tomorrow, he paid tribute to the protagonists of the five national feasts, including the Sette Giugno victims, George Borg Olivier, who secured independence for Malta, Sir Anthony Mamo, the first President of the Republic, and Dom Mintoff for gaining the country's freedom.

Dr Muscat presented mementoes to the representatives of the five musical societies of Cottonera that participated in the party's series of events marking the 30th anniversary of Freedom Day. The festivities culminate this afternoon with a mass meeting in Vittoriosa.
