GNC Members’ Cars Burned as Protestors Vandalise Congress
While the eyes of the world are turned to Ukraine, more horrors are happening right in front of our eyes in Libya. Read about the latest and boldest attack on GNC members, their property, and their legitimacy from the Libya Herald by clicking here. The irony is people are protesting the GNC because it is too weak and they want a strong central authority to build the country and conquer the myriad low level insurgencies. Yet they seemingly fail to grasp that obvious that it is attacks like this that are part of the reason why the periphery is dominating the centre. This time the protestors appear to be the Zintan style anti-Brotherhood types making their actions all the more disruptive and pointless.
The number of protestors swelled to nearly 500 late this evening, all condemning the wave of assassinations in Benghazi, Derna and Sirte and denouncing the GNC and government’s inaction over the country’s ongoing security crisis…..
Another young protester said he was there in solidarity with Benghazi which has seen waves of protests this week against the deteriorating security in the city.He said that Congress was completely controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood and was heavily influenced by foreign agendas.
