*trigger warning* for photo of dead bodies below (not very graphic but still upsetting)

NOTE: i’m kinda uncomfortable with the way thevisualpoet framed this (and the language in/surrounding the petition itself).  but i’m not thinking clearly today, plus i’m not even sure i have a place in this conversation, so i’ll leave any critiques to people who know their shit.

thevisualpoet:

Amnesty International has has launched a petition to the US president and the US representative to the UN, calling for immediate action against the attrocities taking place in Libya.

“Dear President Obama,

I urge you to play a leadership role within the UN Security Council to ensure that a mission is sent to Libya immediately to investigate events that have left hundreds of protesters dead.

Colonel al-Gaddafi and his government appear to be prepared to kill an unlimited number of people to stay in power. The international community needs to act now to put a stop to this. […]

The Security Council must also put an immediate end to the export or transfer of all arms and military equipment to Libya until the risk of serious human rights violations has ended.  All states will be complicit in further killings if they do not cease transfers immediately. […]”

So, if you feel you can nothing but watch as the horrendous events unfold in Libya, you are wrong. Luckily we live in a democracy and we can make known to our leaders what we expect from them.

Tell President Obama and the world what we expect of them now!

Sign the petition and reblog this. Your signature can actually help save lives.

Dear fellow tumblrs, this is so horribly. I want to cry. I feel how I don’t let this come to close to me, but it is there right in front of all of us. And as I’m writing this I feel hope that this petition can accomplish something, it gives me hope. And sure enough it gives hope to every single Libyan still fearing for their life. Let’s do this and spread this petition!


Soldiers in Derna massacred for not firing at Libyans (I didn’t add the link because it’s very graphic)


Mass Burial - Tripoli, Libya Feb 22: Image shot in the aftermath of Gadaffi’s death squads. Many residents of Tripoli fear to even collect the corpses in the street, as Libyan Forces are reportedly firing at random.

It took me 45 minutes to create this post. And one minute to sign the petition.
Please sign and reblog! (And send this via Facebook and E-Mail to anyone you think will care.)

wearelibya:

Every signature is a letter sent to the UN urging them to:

a) impose a no-fly zone to stop the aerial bombings of civilians
b) freeze assets belonging to Qaddafi, his family, and his high command
c) impose targeted sanctions against the regime
d) initiate international prosecutions of military officials involved in the crackdown.

Thanks to http://klarch.tumblr.com/ for sending it in.

UN sanctions Libya

United Nations (CNN) — The United Nations Security Council unanimously approved a draft resolution Saturday to impose sanctions against Libya amid Moammar Gadhafi’s escalating crackdown on anti-government protesters.

It includes an arms embargo, asset freeze and travel bans for Gadhafi and several of his associates. The resolution also refers the situation unfolding in Libya to the International Criminal Court.

i missed this because i kinda dropped out of reality for a couple of days but this is awesome.

thevisualpoet:

Overview: Monstrous acts ending in the killing of the citizens of Libya are taking place in Libya. […] Now is the time for  the United Nations to take action to end the killing taking place in  Libya. This can be done by such actions as establishing a “no fly” zone  to prevent the use of fighter jets against the citizens of Libya.
Petition Text: […] We ask for immediate  action be taken by the Members of the United Nations and it’s Security  Council to act now and end the violence taking place against the  citizens of the country of Libya. We urge this for the peace and freedom  of the citizens of Libya; for the peace and freedom of the country of  Libya; and for the peace and freedom of the world.Sincerly,The Undersigned
I personally don’t like the idea of military intervention, but in this case it seems to be ask by the Libyan people themselves. They particularly ask for a no-fly zone, while not wanting foreign troops on the ground.
Signing the petition takes less than a minute and can make a difference. Please sign and reblog!
I quickly put a few tweets together concerning the latest bombings by Gaddafi’s regime (Martin Chulov is Guardian’s Iraq correspondent currently reporting from Bregga, Libya):
Details about the Libyan airforce (AJE):

The air force is said to be made up of 18,000 members, more than 200  fighter aircraft and 35 attack helicopters. But three aircraft have  already been lost in the current unrest, and the airworthiness of the  remaining jets has been questioned.

Thanks for reading, thanks for signing, thanks for reblogging.

[above images: a series of 7 tweets.  1st tweet is from @AJELive, all others are from @martinchulov.  1st tweet reads “Robert Gates, US DefSec: “#Libya no-fly zone a logistical challenge, no UN authority” #AlJazeera’s liveblog: http://aje/me/gxk7JG #Gaddafi”.  2nd tweet reads “Encountered a Gaddafi jet today. Saw it fly in low towards us near Bregga. But wasn’t expecting a bomb. Fell 200m away in sand. #libya”.  3rd tweet reads “Jets now bombing rebels south of bregga.”  4th tweet reads “4 dead men just brought into bregga hospital.  Frantic but short-lived attempts to revive them.  Heavy weapon thunders in distance #libya”.  5th tweet reads “Three bombs dropped by jets near ajdabiya arms dump this morning. They missed again. #libya”.  6th tweet reads “Benghazi’s organising committee has just formally asked UN to help end Ghaddafi’s air strikes in eastern #libya”.  7th tweet reads “#libya rebels will be sorely tested in coming days. With ghaddafi owning skies, their defences are feeble & attack options few.”]

This is very important, please sign and reblog!

I reblogged this from myself, because of new followers and because everyone needs to sign this and beblog it. Libyans are in dire need of the no-fly zone to stop Gaddafi’s troops.
