One Third of Libya Turns Out in World Largest March Demanding End to NATO Bombing

1.7 million people, or around 95% of the population of Tripoli, one third of the entire population of Libya, have turned out in perhaps the largest demonstration ever in world history last Friday, to demand an end to the NATO bombings of Libya. Photo: Mohanned Magam


The entire premise of NATO bombing Libya, in fulfilment of George Orwell's 1984 "War Is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength" slogan, has been that Colonel Qaddafi is attacking the Libyan population.

First this was shown to be a lie when the Russian military, for the first time publicly displayed video footage from its military spy satellites which showed that no Libyan air force flights took place, nor any massacres, during the months that NATO had claimed as a reason for it launching the now more than 3 month long non-stop bombing of Libya.

The world thought that this would show NATO and the media of those countries, USA, France, Britain, Italy and much of Europe, that there was no massacres or killings by Qaddafi at all, so NATO can call off its "war is peace" bombing campaign and go home. But clearly NATO knew this all along, after all, they too have spy satellites.

It has now taken an entire one third of the population of Libya, exasperated by the lack of truthful media coverage of the events in their country where the only murders that have taken place have been by the NATO-supported rebels which took over Benghazi, to take to the streets to prove the lie that they are being attacked by Qaddafi.


As the above video (if you can't see it just above, means you are missing a plug in, install the plugin or download the video, it is in 3GP Nokia Video format), taken by an amateur phone camera, from on top one of the buildings overlooking Green Square in Tripoli on July 1st, to show the lie. Many professional recordings of the event also proliferate the Internet and several international news networks were forced to finally cover the mass demonstrations against NATO and in support of Qaddafi, by the sheer size of this latest demonstration.

The crowd can be heard chanting in Arabic "People want Colonel Qaddafi", and also the 4.5km and 1.5km long green national flags can be seen making the world's longest ever flag of total 6km. The Libyan flag is plain green so that citizens can easily make their flag, because the Libyan system of government is based on direct participatory democracy, people's conferences and people's committees.

The video above (if you can't see it, look for a message near the top of your window telling you that you need to install a plugin to enable showing of Nokia videos) was taken on the cell phone of Mohanned Magam, 23 years old, who contacted Mathaba on May 26 seeking help to publicise his idea for a "million man march" for Peace in Libya:

My name is Mohanned Magam, i'm from Libya. I was given your contact by a friend who says you are a friend of the Libyan people. We are making this appeal because we are suffering great hardships because of the daily bombing of our cities and the blockade of Libya by NATO forces. Too many civilians have already been killed, men women and children by NATO which is making our life harder with each passing day. So we are making this appeal to you to help us organise an event to raise public awareness about our suffering with a march around the world's capitals against the aggression on Libya and to defend our unique Direct People Democracy in Libya. Please help us because we are dying day by day here. We ask Mathaba if it is possible to be involved in organizing this march and to let as many people as possible to know about this event. We would really appreciate your kind help and God willing we can help to stop this war in Libya.

Thank you very much.
Best Regards
Mohanned Magam
Mohanned also set up a Facebook page and shared his idea with his family and friends, and it spread around Tripoli. Some first attempts raised smaller crowds, and then brought around 400,000 people to the streets, and finally on Friday 1st July, an estimated one million seven hundred thousand (1.7 million) people took to the streets as the idea spread and also received TV news coverage.

A delighted Colonel Muammar Qaddafi addressed the crowd with an impromptu speech which again was widely misreported by NATO countries media including the BBC and British and European press, who said that he called for attacks on Europe. Readers can see for themselves, and also listen to the original Arabic recording of the event, to see that yet again "our" western media is lying.

Mohanned now believes that the marches will grow even further and extend to other cities in Libya should NATO fail to see the entire one third of the population waving green flags on the ground, something they surely cannot fail to notice even from 30,000 feet (10 km) up in the air from where they drop their bombs, nor would the cowardly computer operators based in the USA who fly remote-controlled drones which fire missiles at Libyans day and night have failed to see this as they have cameras that zoom in on their targets.

The pilots, commanders, and drone computer operators, will all face future crimes against humanity charges, for participation in an illegal war when it can be proven that it has been launched on clear lies, and for which ignorance is not a defence from execution for such crimes, as was evidenced at the Nuremberg Trials.

Every one who takes part in a war, an act of aggression, piloting a drone, launching a missile, or dropping a bomb, whether giving the command to do so or carrying out the order, has an obvious and no-brainer duty to check to see whether or not he is committing a crime.

As the entire war violates even the resolutions which the NATO states passed at the UN, and violates the US constitution as well as the Italian constitution, and violates all international laws and was conducted deliberately preventing every effort at peaceful negotiation especially under the auspices of the African Union, there is absolutely no doubt that these people, unlike the Vietnam war veterans who returned home traumatised and to be spat upon, will face a far worse fate, as the memory of justice is long.

Already World People's Conferences on Crimes Against Humanity are likely to take place later this year and from which World People's Tribunals set up by an International Justice Committee will try and sentence all those, no matter if they are granted "protection and immunity" from their governments, as it is becoming clear that even the most powerful governments in the world are also falling. The U.S. itself is totally bankrupt, and it has now been revealed that all the U.S. gold from Fort Knox was stolen (see other recent news articles).
