‘Victory day’ fireworks

Posted in Event, History by Mohamed Abdulla Shafeeg on November 20, 2012

Here are some pictures of fireworks show by the Maldives National Defence Force (MNDF) to mark the Victory Day, 14th November 2012.

Maldives victory day is of supreme importance, as it is on this day that a terrorist group from Sri Lanka attacked the Maldives government. The incident took place long back on the 3rd of November in the year 1988. Since then, 3rd November each year is celebrated as the victory day festival of Maldives, a remembrance of the unwavering defence put up by the National Security Service and the steadfastness of the people, in defending our nation.

May Day Rally 2007

Posted in News, Photojournalism by Mohamed Abdulla Shafeeg on May 1, 2007

The Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) today held a rally to protest the lack of national labour laws. Over thousands workers in Male’ joined hundreds of Party members and supporters to march from the South West harbour area to the artificial beach on the eastern shore of Male’.

The Maldives does not have trade unions and labour laws that guarantee minimum wages, overtime, cost of living allowances, and limits on working hours.

The MDP held the first May Day rally ever marked in the history of Maldives last year. The rally ended with jubilation for thousands of people who gathered and marched on the streets. Part of the success of the rally can be attributed to the sheer number of people it attracted and due to the fact that it came to an end without violence or confrontations with the police.
