Civil War In Libya And The Rebel Racism against Afro-Libyans
Mohamed Hassan discusses the real story behind the Civil War in Libya. Hassan is a specialist in geopolitics and the Arab world. Born in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), he participated in the student movements of the 1974 socialist revolution in his country. He studied political science in Egypt before specializing in public administration in Brussels. A diplomat for his country of birth during the 1990s, he has worked in Washington, Beijing and Brussels. Co-author of ‘Iraq under the occupation’ (EPO, 2003), he has also participated in producing works on Arab nationalism and the Islamic movements, and on Flemish nationalism. He is one of the greatest contemporary experts on the Arab and Muslim world. From a Guns & Butter Presentation with Bonnie Faulkner.
Then, Robert Knight interviews Amnesty International’s Claudio Cordone on US- and NATO-supported Libyan “rebels’” racist or xenophobic abductions, murders and abuses of Afro-Libyans and black guest workers.
Amnesty says in a bulletin released this week that:
“People suspected of having fought for Colonel Mu’ammar al-Gaddafi, in particular black Libyans and sub-Saharan Africans, are at high risk of abuse by anti-Gaddafi forces, Amnesty International said today after witnessing black Libyans being targeted in Tripoli.”
