Transcript of Unrest in Libya

Unrest in Libya It is bordered by: Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Sudan, Niger, Chad and the Mediterranean Sea.With an area of almost 2,000,000 square kilometres Libya is the fourth largest country in Africa. The capital, Tripoli, is home to 1.7 million of Libya's 6.4 million people. On September 1st 1969, a small group of military officers led by then 27-year-old army officer Muammar Gaddafi staged a coup against King Idris, launching the Libyan Revolution. Gaddafi was, and is to this day, referred to as the "Brother Leader and Guide of the Revolution" Human Rights Denied Gaddafi has been in power for 43 years now and over time tightened the grip on his authority. Despite numerous cries for him to leave,the delusional dictator continues to believe his people love him. Libya is a country located in North Africa Libya is also one of the world's top ten richest oil-producing countries.
The United Nations Security Council has passed a resolution freezing the assets of Gaddafi and 10 members of his inner circle. Behind all of this is a strong message demanding that he step down immediately. Until then the protests will continue, and with that the
violence will spread. On February 15th protests broke out in the major cities of Libya. People flooded the streets by the thousands demanding that Gaddafi step down. Nobody expected what was yet to come. The peaceful protests were interrupted by a terrible bombardment of missiles, an attack by Gaddafi's forces. This was the first of many retaliation efforts that followed. Most nations have strongly condemned Gaddafi's use of force against civilians. Canada, the United States, Japan, Australia, the United Kingdom, France, Jordan, and Russia have all imposed sanctions on Gaddafi, many including travel bans on the longtime leader, members of his family, and top officials in his government.
The people of Libya want Gaddafi out. They have put up with restrictions and limitations for much too long. I hope that his reign will not last a 44th year. No matter how long it takes, I have no doubt that the people will not give up. They will attain their much deserved rights and in doing so will gain their independence.
