IN THE NAME OF MONEY

 

Tripoli, the cleansing operations of the revolutionaries police, Thwar, have intensified after the liberation of the town. Many African mercenaries following Gaddafi's sons' militias have managed to escape mingling themselves with the African immigrants that live in the city. This makes it longer to identify and assess suspects. Moreover the Thwar haven't yet organized the official prisons so arrested mercenaries and loyalists are withheld in makeshift buildings such as classrooms within schools, hospitals, and mosques. Local authorities making these arrests say they will investigate the detainees' claims and release them if officials determine immediately all those who were detained without evidence of unlawful activity. The high presence of mercenaries among Gaddafi forces has been highlighted again and again, and invokes the regime's historical involvement in other conflicts in Africa. The mercenaries we met, most of them form Niger and Chad, told us that they took 300 dinars per month during the period of training, and 1000 dinars to going to the front.

 

 

 

         
   

 

 

 

 

 

 

JANZUR PORT, NOWHERE TO GO

 

Over the past week security forces newly operating in neighborhoods around Tripoli have conducted mass arrests of migrant workers from other African countries, holding them in makeshift detention facilities, including a school and a soccer club. Prior to the uprising between 1 and 2 milion African migrant workers were in Libya. In Tripoli there are evidence that the Gaddafi government recruited and used African mercenaries from Chad, Sudan, and other countries. The fear of arrest and intimidation has forced some African migrants to seek safety in numbers. The largest cluster of displaced Africans has become the port at Janzur between Tripoli and Zawiya, where more than 1,000 people from Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal, Gambia, Mali, Niger and other African countries have gathered over the past four months due insecurity during the war. The migrants are living in dirty conditions under tarpaulins stretched between docked boats. Their main complaint, however, is the lack of security at the makeshift camp.

ENDLESS 63 years and the Palestinian Diaspora continues without end

 

The status of Palestinian refugee is transferred from one generation to another, from the beginning until today's 4th generation, there are 6 million dispersed throughout the world. The majority - 4.5 million - lives in the Middle East. It follows a line of place from Palestine to where the project rests now, outside Palestine in the exploration of the camps and the life inside.
