Transcript of Libya's Nationalism

photo credit Nasa / Goddard Space Flight Center / Reto Stöckli Libya's Nationalism Colonized By... Italy...MAMA MIA!!! Leaders Of the Resistance Movement Idris al-Mahdi as-Senussi Why was there a resistance? Because Italy gained Libya after a war with the Ottomans, and the territory the Italians called Libya wanted their independence because of the subjugation of their people. Alright, who wants some? Apparantly anybody who doesn't want to be under the rule of Italy (which was like... a majority of the people in libya). A majority of Libya were with the resistance movement in general, mainly the mujaheddin in the Green Mountain of Northeast Libya. What Methods were used? This wasn't peaceful fighting. It got so bad for Italy that they sent a high ranking officer down to Libya to end the resistance in whatever way possible, in fact it is said that :
"From May 1930 to September 1930 more than 80,000 Libyans were forced to leave their land and live in concentration camps, they were taken 300 at a time watched by soldiers to make sure that the Libyans go directly to the concentration camps. By the end of 1930 all Libyans who live in tents were forced to go and live in the camps. 55% of the Libyans died in the camps." (Todesky)

The Libyan historian Mahmoud Ali At-Taeb said in an interview with the Libyan magazine Ash-Shoura (October 1979) that in November 1930 there were at least seventeen funerals a day in the camps due to hunger, illness and depression. <= Libya over there!

achievements of this resistance movement
