Old Gaddafi Bastion is in our hearts ! Try to catch us!
The ‘last pro-Gaddafi stronghold’ is in our hearts ! Try to catch us!
= LAST REPORT : Bani Walid 19.30 GMT – 24 Oct
= Life and death in Bani Walid, Libya - resident of BANI WALID
Amid worrying news reports from Bani Walid in Libya, our colleague Mona Mahmood has been talking to Abd al-Nasser Alim, a resident in the city.
What is happening in Bani Walid is beyond the imagination. It is a tragedy. The so-called Libyan army, which are in reality a bunch of thugs, are behaving like locusts. They are attacking everything in their way.
This Misurata army are stationed at the entrances of Beni Walid and using all sorts of weapons, tanks, rockets and gases against the people.
They keep shooting the city for 10 hours at random and then have a few troops on the ground and some others in small vans trying to infiltrate, but the men of Bani Walid who are hiding in houses open fire and push them back.
Till now these thugs could not get inside the town owing to the fierce resistance by the people of Bani Walid. Before, we had Gaddafi’s army. Now we have armed militias killing women and children. They have been surrounding the city for 20 days but within the last five days they got crazy and have made our lives here a real hell.
There is no safe place to hide in Bani Walid. I was in opposition to Gaddafi and was imprisoned in Abu Salim prison for a long time, but I regret every moment I opposed Gaddafi after what I have seen here.[With a little Western propaganda makeup - of course]
These armed militias are so barbarian, they are committing crimes against humanity and no one is recognizing that. There is a complete blackout on what is going on here. All the shelling against the city is random, bodies are in the streets from both sides and others are still under rubble – no one can help as they will be shelled too.
There is only one hospital in the whole of Bani Walid, where more than 100,000 people live. It is already in an appalling situation and lacks most of the basic medical stuff. Water and power are cut but people have stored food at home.
Some of the families started to flee to escape the shelling. More than 50,000 people left but the route outside the city is a rocky and desert one and really hard to go through with children. Other families decided to stay for fear of robbery. People are worried to leave their houses and come back to find everything is stolen.
I left during the liberation war but when I came back I found my car was stolen. This time I am staying and will die in my home. We call upon the humanitarian society to come and help us as the city is entirely sealed off and even fleeing is not safe.
This is an act of revenge and racism. People have decided to defend their homes and honor with the arms they have and I can assure you if the situation continues like that, Libya will slip to a civil war eventually.
They are destroying an entire city but people will not keep silent, there are more than 53 tribes in Bani Walid and they have decided to die for their land. [Guardian]

We can see and hear the creeps who want to lead Libya
= Herman spoke about the ongoing violence and conflicting reports surrounding Bani Walid.
RT:You’ve spoken to doctors in Bani Walid and gotten their accounts of chemical weapons. The National Transitional Council – on this channel tonight – categorically insisted that they are not being used, and there is still no properly-verified evidence. What do you think’s really happening?
Morris Herman: Doctors certainly gave accounts of symptoms that reflect lung and breathing problems that you’d find with gas inhalation.
I don’t know if the NTC really represents the Misrata militias that are actually doing the fighting, so the situation is a bit more anarchic. I don’t know that there’s anyone who would really own up to such a thing.
Zintan brigades in the past – this year – have been accused of using gas, so it’s not the first time.
= Bani Walid, Day 20: Genocide In Libya
The UN has taken no action to curb the ongoing violence. Russia attempted to propose a draft statement calling for a peaceful end to the violence in Bani Walid, but was blocked by the US.
“There is no government in Libya, only armed groups and all of them are under Al-Qaeda control.”

The Libyan State and its U.S. manufacturer, called freedom and democracy is cutting all contacts ((Internet, telephone Libyana and hour)) about the city of Bani Walid and also cut off electricity and water.
= IRELAND: Communist Party of the Irish Republic Statement on the Ungoing Massacre of Civilians in Bani Walid, Libya.
For 20 days now, while most of the world has looked on in dumb silence, the city of Bani Walid, in Libya, has been under indiscriminate shelling from Misurata militias, nominally loyal to the NATO imposed National Transitional Council (NTC.) These are the very same Misurata militias who dubbed themselves “The Brigades for the Elimination of Black Skins,” as they ethnically cleansed 40,000 Black inhabitants from the city of Tawarga - again with the silent complicity of most of the Western media and political parties, including, shamefully, the parties of the Left.
