Violence against Black African workers in Libya
Aaron Aarons
Using the excuse that some Black Africans are paid soldiers in the Libyan military and are taking orders from Qaddafi, many anti-Qaddafi Libyans have violently attacked and even killed Black African migrant workers. There may also have been some violence against these workers by Qaddafi supporters as well. The following article, African migrants targeted in Libya, is from Al Jazeera English and can be found, with a related video and other links, at: http://english.aljazeera.net/news/africa/2011/02/201122865814378541.html (BTW, I hope that I am not, by posting this, helping provide another justification for U.S./U.N. imperialist intervention an intervention that would be bad for both Arab Libyan and Black African workers.)
