World peace delegation heads to Libya on a further fact-finding mission on 14 May 2011

Voluntary group Global Civilians for Peace return to Libya for their second visit since the war began with plans to meet civil representatives, record and document the facts as they find them and contribute to peaceful resolution of the conflict.

Global Civilians for Peace in Libya is embarking on its second fact-finding mission into the war-torn country. The delegation is comprised of academics, professionals, journalists and ex-military personnel from Europe, North America, England, Middle East and Africa. The delegates are independent and not allied to any government or official body. Italian camera crew will be embedded with the group, a TV producer from Britain and a French well-known Journalist.

Whilst in Libya they aim to add their voices to the calls for an immediate ceasefire and an end to hostilities on all sides including the air attacks by NATO, the UN and now the recently introduced drone bombings. The delegation has the following objectives:
· to discover the truth about the causes for the conflict
· to document the real damage that has been suffered by all the non-combatant Libyan people
· to discern the prospects of a lasting and equitable peace.

The delegation has scheduled meetings with refugees from all parts of Libya; the Prelate of the Catholic Church in Libya (Bishop Giovanni Innocenzo Martinelli, the apostolic vicar of Tripoli); and Libyan tribal Leaders. The delegation plans to deliver sincere condolences from the world community to all the Libya people who have suffered so much because of this war. The delegation will travel to a number of war-torn cities and communities, in order to document not only the physical damage but also to meet with the people in those areas to hear their stories without any political or media interference. The delegation will look into the humanitarian needs of the Libyan people with regard to any shortages of medicines, fuel, food and so on.

Global Civilians for Peace continues to call upon the African Union to take a lead role in the implementation of an immediate ceasefire. Global Civilians for Peace is the international successor of British Civilians for Peace who broadened their membership after other nationalities joined them on their first fact-finding mission in April. The first fact finding mission was able to corroborate reports of civilian deaths and injuries due to NATO bombing. However despite detailed investigations they were not able to substantiate the allegation the three areas of Tajora, Soqjoma and RasHsen of Tripoli cited in the UN resolution 1973 had been subjected to Libyan government bombardment. They have produced an interim report on the situation in Western Libya.

I hope your visit will shed some light on these reports..which I hope are not true..but fear they are. These reports have been consistently ignored by the MSM. I did see this report on Russia Today, and also on BlackAgendaReport.

LIBYA: Rebels execute black immigrants while forces kidnap others
Comments (63)

ADDIS ABABA — While much of the world’s attention is focusing on crude oil prices and the Libyan pipelines in the east of the country– human right groups say rebels are committing crimes against humanity.

In east Libya, African hunt began as towns and cities began fall under the control of Libyan rebels, mobs and gangs. They started to detain, insult, rape and even executing black immigrants, students and refugees.

In the past two weeks, more than 100 Africans from various Sub-Sahara states are believed to have been killed by Libyan rebels and their supporters.

According to Somali refugees in Libya, at least five Somalis from Somaliland and Somalia were executed in Tripoli and Benghazi by anti-Gaddafi mobs. Dozens of refugees and immigrants workers from Ethiopia, Eritrea, Ghana, Nigeria, Chad, Mali and Niger have been killed, some of them were led into the desert and stabbed to death. Black Libyan men receiving medical care in hospitals in Benghazi were reportedly abducted by armed rebels. They are part of more than 200 African immigrants held in secret locations by the rebels.

In many disputes involving Libyan residents and black Africans, the Libyans are turning in the Africans as mercenaries.

Thousands more Africans caught up in this mercenary hysteria are terrified. Some barricaded themselves in their homes, while others hid in the desert. Insulted, threatened, beaten, chased and robbed. Their only crime was being black and therefore treated as “mercenaries” of Gaddafi
