Protesters rallied against the sale of refugees as slaves in Libya. People held banners reading “stop slavery in Libya in the 21st century,” and marched through the center to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Paris.
One of the protesters, said he had not wanted to come to France. “It’s not like we want to come to Europe. It’s because Sarkozy went to destroy Libya.”
The protest was triggered by the recent CNN report of its undercover journalists filming men being sold at auction in Libya. The North African oil rich country has been invaded and occupied by Italian, French and British troops since the assassination of Ghadaffi in order to ‘protect’ the oil business.
The UN/NATO bombing campaign dropped more bombs on Libya than the allied forces did on Nazi Germany during WW II.
