On June 4, 2012 a Libyan Military court heard a case of Ukrainian citizens arrested in August 2011 by revolutionary brigade "Al-Kaakaa". The court recognised all group members guilty of assistance to Kaddafi forces and sentenced 23 people to 10 years of imprisonment and 1 person to life imprisonment.
It is a group of the civil technicians who arrived in Libya under civil contracts. Instead of that they were captured by Kaddafi forces and enforced under pain of death to perform a little time works on military technical equipment repair. They did not participate in military operations, did not take weapon in their hands, and did not battle for any fighting parties! They are hostages of a current situation!
Especially it is necessary to notice that these people arrived in Libya under lawful contracts of the international cooperation, and they are citizens of the countries, which had diplomatic relations with Libya.
On July 7th 2012, Libya held its first democratic election in 60 years. In response The Financial Times reported on July 11th, that Libya still lacks the resources to reconstruct the damages of the war, to ensure a smooth transition between the two governments.
Sherif Salem, Senior VP at Invest AD stated that "Even a little investment in infrastructure could go a long way to improving living conditions, and creating jobs." This petition is sponsered by the organization Project Democracy as a post-war effort to get Libya back on its feet and create stability in the region.
Since 1988 thousands of men, women and children have perished in the Mediterranean attempting the so-called ‘voyage of hope’ to Europe. Tens of billions of euros are spent every year to control our borders and immigration processing.
In Europe, we should have a better expenditure management and better respect for human rights.
Ask the European Parliament to reform laws on immigration and a more humane management of migration flows by creating a European Organization for Management of the Immigration and Asylum Requests.
The war in Afghanistan costs thousands of lives and trillions of dollars in defense of a corrupt and unpopular regime, one that is entirely dependent on Western troops and aid.
The war has inflamed Muslim opinion and failed to make Europe or the United States safer. Morality is undermined by recent NATO claims of no “confirmed” civilian casualties.
A recent United Nations report suggests that the United States and NATO allies are outsourcing torture and human rights violations in Afghanistan. The report concludes that there is a continuing pattern and practice of “systematic” torture in spite of repeated efforts at reform. (UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, October 2011)
Current US policy violates the Leahy Amendment to the Foreign Appropriations Act and Defense Appropriations Act (Sec. 563, P.L. 106-429 and Sec. 8092, P.L. 106-259, 2001).
Demand an URGENT release of Serbian workers who were falsely accused of killing civilians with snipers in Libya!
The Rebels in Libya are slaughtering and executing innocent black African migrants. I don't know why its not receiving enough coverage on the News.
We need to speak up for this men, who are mostly from West Africa (the ones featured on Channel 4 News yesterday were Nigerians, they were quite lucky, if not for the Channel 4 News team, they would be dead by now).
The rebels see black African migrants and assume they are mercenaries, most mercenaries are from Chad, Niger and Maurtania. There are lots of footage of African Migarants bn executed on youtube, is there any chance someone can set up a page asking Rebels to stop committing these atrocities.
Vision 2011 & Beyond Coalition; as a Human Rights, Civic and Voter Education Coalition, we have been following the sad developments in the Arab States in North Africa (Tunisia, Egypt, and now Libya), as well as in Syria and Yemen - where there have been some civil unrest in the recent past.
We are deeply saddened by the loss of innocent civilian lives in the process and hope that a peaceful and lasting solution shall soon be reached, for the benefit of the citizens of the affected Arab Nations. However, we condemn the killings of innocent civilians.
As regards Libya, Africa must reject military intervention in Libya by the United Nations (UN). We sincerely hope the UN Security Council’s military intervention shall be in the best interest of the Libyan people because the problem is more of a political than military nature – it does not warrant such air strikes that have damaged the country’s infrastructure - in the pretext of protecting civilians.
Muammar Gaddafi has been in power for forty-two years and a lot of people want him to resign.
He has too much power over everybody and the Libyan people want their freedom.
Gaddafi has been killing a lot of protesters protesting against him and this needs to stop. Gaddafi needs to resign.
Dear RHUL Management,
I am sure you are aware of the recent case of Iman al-Obeidi in Libya. Ms al-Obeidi rushed into a hotel full of western journalists to tell them that she had just been gang-raped by troops loyal to Colonel Gaddafi.
Despite being clearly distraught and showing the journalists bruises on her legs, she was tackled and dragged away by hotel staff and government minders. She is now facing criminal charges herself for bringing “dishonour” upon those whom she accused of rape. A government spokesman, Ibrahim Moussa, has been very dismissive of Ms al-Obeidi and has called her “drunk” and “disturbed”, and has shown absolutely no concern for her welfare.
The United States cannot afford a deepening quagmire in Libya. We call on President Obama to seek authorization from the U.S. Congress for his Libyan bombing campaign, including a mission statement limited to protecting Libyan civilians, a viable diplomatic strategy, an exact cost projection, and a timeline for the rapid withdrawal of all U.S. combat troops before the war becomes another quagmire.
The endless rule and dictatorship by Gaddaffi cannot be
condoned; on the other hand the bogus intervention by
the UN in trying to protect civilians its a joke. South Africa
has voted for the proposal of the no fly zone; but in all
earnest whos fooling who. Civilians will be in harms way
more now. America has started wars in many countries
have they accounted nope and this is a result of the fact
that they are not signatories to the ICC. so they do as they
please steal as they want.
The peace is under attack by the politicians of US and EU. They want to kill the independence of Libya now. They have organize a huge disinformation campaign against the free peoples of Libya.. They want to make us a slaves.
There are only the some facts of the information war against free Libya:
We will send this petition to the United Nations Organization, to the other international organizations, to the leaders of states and to the statesmen. Free Libya needs your vote, our world needs your vote, the peace needs your vote, the future needs your vote!
STOP POLITICIANS !!!!
VOTE FOR A FREE LIBYA !!!

We Demand our favorite Channel Aljazeera in Bahrain, Syria and Saudi Arabia to follow the same editorial policy which it used in covering Tunisia, Egypt and libya.
Did you know that LY (.ly) is the internet domain belonging to the Libyan government? Every internet service that uses .ly is paying Muammar Gaddafi's government for the privilege - money that is being used to violently oppress the Libyan people.
Act.ly, bit.ly, HootSuite, The San Francisco Chronicle and others should stop using .ly domains and stop paying Gaddafi's government. At least one US-based internet service has been censored by Libya, and the .ly domain could be unusable in the event of international sanctions. The .ly domain is bad choice - and you can choose not to use it.

Libya in Crisis. Support the Libyan people's revolution on February 17.
Who thinks the British army should not fight for any other people's arguments?
We should try to stop our troops from going into Libya.
For the sake of humanity, stop unarmed civilians being slaughtered.
After more than 200 years of internment on foreign soil and US government indifference, it's time for the American people to bring home 13 heroes from America's first foreign conflict, a fight that goes on to this day for freedom of the seas. In 1801, the United States went to war to stop pirate attacks on its ships in the Mediterranean.
The war went on for three years, when, on Sept. 4, 1804, Master Commandant Richard Somers and 12 others attempted to execute the second-ever commando raid on foreign soil. The raid ended in disaster as Somers' vessel, the first USS Intrepid in the US Navy, exploded, killing all on board. The bodies of Somers and his crew floated ashore the next day and remain buried in an unkempt cemetery and an unmarked common grave to this day in Tripoli.
Starting in 2006, the descendants of the sailors attempted to bring home the remains of these brave men. Our own government continues to thwart these efforts.
This MUST change.
Six healthcare workers, Christiana, Valia, Nasia, Valentina, Snezhana and Ashraf, were found guilty of deliberately starting an HIV outbreak at a hospital in Benghazi in eastern Libya.
The Libyan court refused to pay attention on the accumulated medical data which proves their innocence. International experts such as Dr. Luc Montagnier, the eminent discoverer of the AIDS virus, traveled to Libya to study the situation. He and others testified that the infection started prior the arrival of the six. He found that the infections were a result of poor sanitary practices at the hospital.
The death sentence is supposed to be reviewed by the Supreme Court of Libya but the Bulgarian attorneys have been denied access to the prison since the last court hearing. The resolution passed by the European Parliament in January 2007 was accepted negatively by Tripoli. There is even a new charge against the medics - this time for slander against Libyan policemen.
Libya is convinced that the six foreigners are worthy of blame. The rest of the world is convinced that the fault is in the poor hospital hygiene.
This makes the situation extremely delicate.
However, a possible solution would be to refer the trial to the International Court of Justice in the Hague or to a third, disinterested party. It would have the additional benefit of making the case less political by leaving it in the hands of an independent court. In this way the diplomatic and economical relations between Libya and the rest of the world would also stay autonomous of the issue.
Please give Christiana Malinova Valcheva, Valia Georgieva Cherveniashka, Nasia Stoitcheva Nenova, Valentina Manolova Siropulo and Snezhana Ivanova Dimitrova from Bulgaraia, and Ashraf Ahmad Jum'a from Palestina the right to an independent trial.
NOTE: News regarding the issue is daily updated at the Petition's Forum.
Since 1999 five Bulgarian nurses and one Palestinian doctor working in Libya (known as the Benghazi Six) have been twice sentenced to death by firing squad for knowingly infecting over 400 people, predominantly children, with HIV.
Four scientific reports, including one done by the World Health organization (WHO), all found the particular strain of HIV in question to have been present in some of these children since 1998, one year before the Benghazi Six began work in the Benghazi Children's Hospital. One of the HIV/AIDS co-discoverers even testified on behalf of the Benghazi Six.
Libya has asked for €10 million (£6.7milion) compensation to be paid to each of the families of victims, suggesting the death sentences could be commuted in return. Bulgaria has rejected the proposal, saying any payment would be seen as an admission of guilt. The Benghazi Six have maintained their claims of innocence and state the any admission of guilt was acquired with torture.
On December 28, 2006 the Benghazi Six were again found guilty and again sentenced to death by firing squad but have sixty days to appeal the decision.
