The Crime against Libya
Canada's Parliament voted to extend its contribution to NATO's war on Libya
On Sept. 26th Canada’s Parliament voted to extend its contribution to NATO’s war on Libya; the NDP presented opposition, calling for a shift of the military mission to humanitarian objectives.
NATO and the National Transitional Council (NTC) forces’ attempt to destroy the city of Sirte continues with its residents reporting NATO’s bombing of hospitals and schools. With the City of Tawarga, predominantly poor, black and pro-Gaddafi, now burnt and empty, civilians in both Sirte and Bani Walid are reported resisting.
Due to the targeted killing of the Chief of State’s family, the NTC detention-killing-torture of civilians who are black, current reports in Tripoli and Sirte of group kidnapping of women, the NTC‘s pledge to surround the City and starve it out, the destruction by NATO of targets protected by Geneva Conventions, the lack of balanced reporting in Western countries, inaction by global human rights organizations including the United Nations, the fabric of international law is broken and maintains credibility of intention through its support by the African Union, left of centre nations in the Americas, possibly Russia and China, and non-aligned groupings globally. Nightslantern places a genocide warning for Libya, particularly for portions of the national group in the cities of Sirte and Ben Wali. NATO’s support for one side of the Libyan conflict presents a white military incursion into Africa, without protection for black Africans or those who assure their rights.
