The Fall of The People

with 2 comments

Our friend in Tripoli reports.

A new morning with more horrific news. Yesterday in Benghazi Qaddafi henchmen fired at mourners of the dead – and during the burial services of more than 80 martyrs – with machine guns. The families burying their beloved heroes were all shot in the cemetery – الله أكبر (Allahu akbar!) Qaddafi is taking out his lunatic rage against the people of Libya!

Benghazi confirmed the death of 200 in one hospital. There is no question now it was a massacre in Libya. And this morning, the heroes of Benghazi are burying more than 216 martyrs. Reports are informing me that the total death toll is over 400 by now.

Last night in Tripoli, they released many prisoners of ‘’Jdayda’’ (most of them are criminals or illegal/homeless immigrants from different African countries) to terrorize people, attack protestors and steal houses. They kept only prisoners that belong to ward 9 (which contains the most deadly dangerous criminals). Gaddafi also released the female section of the prison and now Tripoli city is filled with thugs and criminals everywhere and it has become unsafe to go out alone. It’s obvious that Qaddafi wants the fall of the people (a play on The People Want The Fall of the Regime).

People in Benghazi are URGENTLY calling for MEDIA COVERAGE to stop the killing that is happening!! I’m afraid the death toll by the coming days will be hundreds each day, and the population of all Libya is less than 7 millions (62.6% of them are aged between 15-64 years old). Mercenaries are given the order to kill anyone they see in the streets of Benghazi, ANYONE! Civilian cars in Benghazi are running over people in the streets. Qaddaffi is using anti-aircraft weapons to kill unarmed civilians! People in Benghazi are helping each other and sending food supplies from all the shops and the supermarkets in the city ( for free of course) and distribute it to families, but very soon the food supply will come to an end.

In Tripoli, I went out yesterday and I noticed that all people in the supermarkets are shopping in bulk and each one keeps saying that things will get worse the coming days but none is officially moving in the capital. There are protests during the nights in Tajoura, Zawiya, Misurata, and some areas from Tripoli (Ghoot Shaal, Hadba, Fashloom, Gurji) but none of these protests are united because civilian security forces are spreading all around the capital and other cities and stop any chance for a protest by KILLING and so far at least 5 people died in Misurata and unconfirmed number of dead people around the cities and areas of Tripoli.

To the world: Open massacres are taking place in Libya. Why the short silence? Please try to call all charity organizations you know to send medical supply and food to east Libya. Please call all politicians and leaders to act. Is the world waiting until Libya breaks (with the madcap Kaddafi) Algeria’s record number of the ‘’million martyrs’’? God forbid.
