“1,2,3 Libya must be free!” [Video]

This was one of the slogans Libyan protesters shouted against Col Muammar Gaddafi’s regime, this afternoon in Sheffield City Centre.

About 50 people – including children and women – gathered outside the town hall to join the spiral of protests throughout nations in North Africa. The price to pay for a democratic reform in Libya seems to be a river of blood, after security forces fired on protesters in Tripoli on Sunday night.

Boosted by Egypt revolts, Libyans believe now it’s the right time for a change. On the other hand, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi – who has led since 1969 – and his son Saif al-Islam would rather start a civil war than surrender to the opposition.

During the demonstrations in Sheffield, the Libyan protesters stopped to pray at 2pm.
