The Longest Dictatorship in the World is Brought Down to its Knees

This development, with the capital creating its own nationalist mythos of revolutionary participation, is the very best thing that could have happened. Instead of being liberated (and somewhat subjected) from the outside by Berber or Cyrenaican revolutionaries, Tripoli enters the Second Republic with its own uprising to its name, as a full equal able to gain seats on the Transitional National Council once the Qaddafis and their henchmen are out of the way. There will be no East/West divide. My hopes for a government of national unity as the last phase of the revolution before parliamentary elections now seem more plausible than ever. Tellingly, Tunisia and Egypt both recognized the TNC as Libya’s legitimate government through the night, as the Tripoli uprising unfolded. Regional powers can see the new Libya being born.”

This documentary is a must-see. Watch at least the first 4 minutes that explain you how the protests in Libya started, then it goes on to let Libyan exiles tell the story of how the regime used terror, cruelty and torture as a tool to maintain its power. This documentary by Aljazeera gives anyone a real understanding why the things are happening in Libya right now. It is deeply moving.

Please reblog.

Help spread the information on the events happening in Libya!

This is a really good documentary, it actually shows you what life was like in Libya…this why Libyans want a better life. Gadaffi didn’t just start killing people, he’s been oppressing and killing people for 42 years!

They have only found dead corpses so far, but claim that they can hear screams…so they are digging even further.

“A revolution is coming — a revolution which will be peaceful if we are wise enough; compassionate if we care enough; successful if we are fortunate enough — But a revolution which is coming whether we will it or not. We can affect its character; we cannot alter its inevitability.” - John F. Kennedy

For anyone still unaware…


There’s a massacre going on in Libya right now. They’re tricking, then shooting protesters and raping women. Pray for them.

Today a 6.3 earthquake hit Christchurch, New Zealand. Lives have been lost and the damage is extensive.

They just left them cut off.

They are trying to silence Libya’s message.

This is why we need to spread awareness. They are trying to stop their voice. We have to be their voice right now.
