On the 14th of Feb, three days after the fall of Egyptian Pres Mubarak, Libyan Facebook users sent out the call to peacefully protest against Gadhafi. Needless to say the Libyan government were not amused and tried to quell fears Gadhafi’s days as dictator were numbered. It didn’t work. Seven days later and the streets now flow with the blood of disgruntled Libyans as soldiers gunned them down on the streets and even as they bury the dead. It is rumored Libya have switched off the internet so soldiers can begin slaughtering protester away from the horrified eyes of the world. Hmm, there isn’t much they can do when Libya’s Internet is owned and controlled by the government. Today Gadhafi’s son Saif al-Islam appeared on state television to warn demonstrators that if they don’t stop the nonsense the country is heading for a civil war.
I swear this is all the doing of the Y-gen! Friggin social media!
Psst Meanwhile over in China another Facebook protest campaign named the “Jasmine Revolution” has been dismissed by Chinese Government as simply “performance art”. Good luck with that!
