Libya: Bad times for the black man

14/05/2012

Black African Migrants Forced To Eat Flag

A video purporting to show black African migrants being force-fed Muammar Gaddafi‘s flag has surfaced, underscoring alleged abuses of migrant workers in Libya since the fall of the regime.

In the video, a group of men are seen sitting on the floor inside of a cage with their hands tied behind their backs.

According to RT, the voice of a man off-camera demands that the men eat the all-green Libyan flag used under Gaddafi’s rule. “Eat the flag, you dog. Patience you dog, patience,” he says.

After the death of Gaddafi, the former Libyan leader, rebel fighters began “an immediate hunt” for his former loyalists. African migrants in particular have been targeted on suspicion of being Gaddafi mercenaries.

Racism and the belief that [Gaddafi] heavily recruited sub-Saharan mercenaries during the war have made dark-skinned Libyans and black Africans a recurring target of theft, and abuse by armed brigades, according to rights groups,” AFP reports.

Thousands of African migrant workers have reportedly been detained illegally. According to the BBC, evidence suggests that some of the former rebels “engaged in a violent campaign of abuse and intimidation against the black immigrant community in Tripoli” immediately following Gaddafi’s death.

Amnesty International released a statement condemning “widespread abuses” by armed Libyan militias enjoying blanket impunity.

  6. Thanks for your post. One other thing is the fact that individual American states have their particular laws that will affect house owners, which makes it very, very hard for the our lawmakers to come up with a different set of rules concerning foreclosure on home owners. The problem is that every state provides own legislation which may have impact in an adverse manner in terms of foreclosure guidelines.
