Protesters storm Libyan congress over 'unrepresentative' govt make-up


rt.com

More than 100 protesters have broken into the Libyan National Congress, disrupting the MPs’ work. The demonstrators are infuriated by the proposed make-up of the country’s new government, saying it is not representative enough.

The demonstrators, who come from the western town of Zawiyah, one of Libya’s oil hubs, traveled 50km from their home to the capital after the prime minister failed to select their nominee as oil minister.

"After we heard the list, everyone in Zawiyah was angry.

I hope the world is paying attention to Libya because the people of Libya are trying to get things done. Since last years civil war Gaddafi's regime has fallen but unfortunately life in Libya is not easier but rather the opposite. Terrorist groups have flocked to Libya, set up base, and become local bullies. The new Gov't is weak and afraid of said terrorist.

The September 11 Embassy attack in Bengazi was the straw that broke the camels back of the Libyan people. The day after the terrorist attacks the Libyans protested extremists while apologizing to the USA. Many who read about that protest weren't satisified the Libyans were really sorry, in fact some even accused the protest of being staged.

Well, ask and thou shall receive because on September 22 the Libyans once again took to the streets in protest. Men, women, and children in thousands were protesting the terrorist occupation in their country. But what they did different this time was truly amazing. As night fell the women and children were escorted home and the men continued the march to known terrorist bases. They over ran said bases, drove the terrorists out and set the place ablaze.

And now they are storming their own National Congress again in protest.


Dozens of angry people breaking into the congress’s main hall forced a special session studying nominations for a transitional government to be canceled.

"[PM Mustafa Abushagur] said that he would form a coalition government, that he would look at experience. Zawiyah proposed candidates for oil minister, but he's brought in someone who is not well-known," the protesters said.

They further accused the PM-elect of putting ideology first when choosing candidates, which resulted in several members of the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood appear on the list. At the same time, the liberal National Forces Alliance was not represented at all, says the leader of the liberal coalition, Ibrahim al-Gharyani.

It's beautiful and scary.

Beautiful to see the public fighting back against this extremist occupation of Libya.

Scary because it is in fact the US and NATO who funded said groups in the first place, to assist in assassinating the one man capable of bringing Africa together as a coherent whole.

It's a crucible.
One step at a time. The people will get it together again.
Remember, it's only been about a year.

I couldn't agree with you more. My thoughts exactly.


Gaddafi is an enigma to me. In the USA we are told to hate him but learning things via the internet has told me quite the opposite. I have no doubts that Gaddafi could be the Bad Man but actions do speak louder than words. In the 1950s Libya was declared the poorest nation on Earth. Gaddafi took control of Libya during a bloodless coup in the 1960s and since he took power he did completely change Libya for the better. It's actually amazing how he transformed that country. Well, it wasn't only him, but point is Gaddafi is the focus here.

I would love to be able to go to Libya and speak with the people and hear first hand of how life has been for them. I especially wanna speak to Libya's elders.

True that. As with anything in our world, things take time.

Good things come to those who wait.
