Libyan Revolution: 27 february

  • Having crossed the Libyan border from Egypt, we had our first experience of the Libyan Revolution in Tobruk.

    It was February 24 and the people there were having a demonstration to celebrate the first week of their victory against the police and the army, on Feb 17, first day of the uprising.

    • Joanna Maier Absolutely stunning Temoris!

    • Témoris Grecko I’m happy you like them. The Libyan people are wonderful. It’s really difficult for us to understand how they feel because we have always lived in freedom.
      Freedom is a word that seems abstract until you lose it. They never had it.

    • Luis Padua Viñals Temoris, a mi me suena a un despertar árabe, aunque no dudo que hay poderes queriendo manipular esto. Tú cómo lo ves, hay mano negra?

      28 February at 18:14 · 
    • Témoris Grecko Teresita, gracias, pero… no, yo veo la historia. La historia la hace esta gente que está bajo esta ventana, arriesgándolo todo. Recuerda que los periodistas venimos y vamos… la gente se queda.

      Siempre hay mano negra, Luis. Aquí hay muchas, las que vemos, las que sospechamos y las que no imaginamos. El problema es simplificar las cosas y atribuir todo a un compló. Me indignó por ejemplo, james Petras, cuando dijo que los jóvenes i…See more

        • Témoris Grecko Haha, I hope this time I didn’t look as bad as always!
          I searched the ARD website but couldn’t find the clip… could you send me the link, if you got time?
          Cheers Alicia and Felix!

  • Revolutionary civic awakening is wonderful. We saw it in Egypt: its people are more thoughtful than ever. They cleaned up Tahrir and left it better than it was. They went on to paint streets and motivate people to stop littering, they wanna build a new Egypt. Here in Libya, people are fixing street lights and staff that was broken for years. People may be hurt, but deeply optimistic

      • Edith Pozos Qué emocionante! Uno se pregunta cuándo haremos lo mismo aquí! Algo debe ocurrir.Lo peor ya está sucediendo.

      • Nicolas Busch Témoris – I was so glad to see you again… in the German News on Televesion – you made a nice impression as guest at the press conference – Nice to hear your updates – keep up the good work 🙂

  • I’m in Libya, but only now I could upload this album from Feb 27th’s demo at Cairo’s Tahrir square. This was a victory celebration but also a message sent to the Army: we give you the chance you want to conduct the transition but keep in mind that we can take the streets again.

  • I saw Air Force officers taking group-of-friends photos and yelling to bring in Al Jazeera. People here are inexperienced and haven’t realised that media (and particularly Al Jazeera) can be puppy-looking Dobermans. They are learning the hard way now. Willingly or not, Al Jazeera gave a platform for the former Justice minister’s attempt to appoint himself as head of the Revolution

      • Cris Pagès Boune Ay caray, nunca se sabe de dónde recibe uno la información. Las noticias que más veo son las de AlJazeera, pues me parecían las menos tendenciosas, cosa que me extrañaba. Gracias por dejarnos ver algunos entresijos y cuídate mucho. Cris

  • Internet has helped to spark these uprisings, but branding them with internet names only shows how narrow-minded are many journalists. There are many more causes. And one of them is called Al Jazeera: the dimension and reach of any of these uprisings is being shown, interpreted, reinterpreted and magnified by this news network, under its own agenda

    27 February at 18:59 ·  · 

  • They call the recent Muslim uprisings with internet names: Twitter Revolution, for Iran’s; WikiLeaks Revolution, for Tunisia’s; Facebook Revolution, for Egypt’s; no one has dared to brand Libya’s yet, as it’s clear that too few people here have internet access. They are all totally wrong

  • Yesterday, in a bloody battle, the people of the city of Zawiya, 45 kms from Tripoli, defeated and expelled Gaddafi’s troops. There are news that about 40 tanks and many troops of the regime’s side are getting ready for to attack. People here in Benghazi are sad and angry, feeling impotent to help. We can only hope this attack won’t come

      • Lucía Ledesma Cuidate mucho Témoris.

      • Miguel Acosta Témoris. Gracias por estos reportes y coincido en que debes cuidarte. No te expongas. Un abrazo!

      • Gabriela Lara Què horror. Qué hay de cierto en la versión de que Al-Qaeda està detràs del levantamiento en Libia? Son inventos de Kadafi también?

        27 February at 19:07 · 
      • Témoris Grecko Mentiras viles.

        27 February at 19:09 · 
      • Gabriela Lara Me imaginè. Circula otra versión “complotista” sobre que detrás de todo esto hay intereses internacionales q buscan apoderarse del petróleo libio. A mí me parece que se trata de un pueblo cansado de un dictador loco y opresor.

      • Alberto Escorcia Será excelente tener reportes confiables, ahora mismo Telesur reporta que Gadafi controla 3/4 de Libia y que no hay bombardeos

        27 February at 21:46 · 
      • Efrain Ceballos Suerte Temoris. Cuidate. Un abrazo

        28 February at 02:36 · 
      • Témoris Grecko Están diciendo eso? Qué bárbaros!
        Gracias Efraín!

  • I’m amazed about how Libyans give themselves to their Revolution. Some fight, some discuss administration matters, some clean, some serve as drivers after work, restaurant and pharmacy owners donate food and medicines, journalists make newspapers… a telecomm engineer set up a satelital connection for the media and this is why I’m posting here

    27 February at 18:25 ·  · 

      • Mary Zuñiga-Chavez That’s how it should be! They are making a good example to the whole world. I wish them peace and success in their revolution. They certainly deserve it! My admiration and respect to the people of Libya. Hugs Témoris!

        27 February at 18:29 · 
      • Ernesto Flores Vega You are our eyes, Master Chronicler! Thanx for sharing!

        27 February at 18:30 · 
      • Marga Zambrana Thanks to the telecomm engineer!

      • Cris Pagès Boune Y que así dure! Gracias de nuevo

  • In my analysis, the Libyan revolutionaries responded well to the former minister’s challenge. They are too busy to engage in political infighting. So they announced the creation of a National Council without indulging in putting their names up front. This should make clear that the minister represents nobody, without rushing into personal politics

    27 February at 18:20 ·
  • All revolutions are chaotic and this one is no different. Gaddafi has not been defeated yet but the political game has started. With Al Jazeera’s help, a former Gaddafi’s official-cum-revolutionary declared himself head of a new government. He used to be the minister of Justice… what kind of justice was that under Gaddafi? Well, he now pretends to be the face of a new Libya
