Libya's antigovernment protests escalate on 'day of rage' against Muammar Qaddafi

Libya's leader Col. Muammar Qaddafi tried to appease protesters after fierce clashes Wednesday, but unrest continued today in a proclaimed 'day of rage.' Protests have now reached four cities.

A Facebook group calling for a “day of anger” saw its membership more than double this week, from 4,400 members on Monday to 9,600 on Wednesday, according to Al Jazeera. On another website – Libya Our Home, which is based outside of Libya – Libyans and foreigners alike urged the protesters to stand strong against the government today.

“From every square in our beloved country, people should all come together in one city and one square to make this regime and its supporters afraid, and force them to run away because they are cowards,” one post read, according to an MSNBC translation from the website.

Protests began Tuesday after the arrest of human rights advocate Fathi Tarbel, the Washington Post reports, and quickly took on an antigovernment tone. Although the initial protest was small, it showed that Libyans were emboldened by protests elsewhere. Mr. Tarbel was released, but protests continued.

On Wednesday, demonstrators gathered in Benghazi and nearby Beyida to call for Qaddafi’s resignation and the establishment of a constitution, among other political and economic reforms. Marchers set fire to police stations and security headquarters, according to witnesses who spoke to The Washington Post.

Gaddafi Regime in 'State of Panic' as Libyans Take to the Streets for Day of Rage

The recent events in Libya come at a time as a wave of huge change is sweeping the region. After the Tunisian uprising succeeded in overthrowing president Ben Ali, the Libyan regime was taken by surprise and the Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi, was in a state of denial. He criticized the Tunisian people. But when his biggest ally in the region, Egyptian president Husni Mubarak, was overthrown in a remarkable way, the regime went into a state of panic.

Re: BREAKING LIBYA PROTESTS
BBC radio, quoting an eyewitness, said doctors had counted the bodies of 10 people after the clashes in Benghazi, which is about 1,000 km east of the Libyan capital.

Another resident in Benghazi, who said he had been in contact with people in the nearby town of al Bayda, told Reuters: "The confrontation between protesters and Gadhafi supporters is still going on, some of the police have become angry. There are a lot of people killed."

Local sources had earlier told Reuters that at least five people were killed in al Bayda.

The resident also said that Saadi Gadhafi, a businessman son of the Libyan leader, had been on local radio and said he was coming to Benghazi to take over as mayor of the city and protect the people there.

Saadi Gadhafi holds senior military rank and was briefly employed as a player by Italian professional football clubs.

Funerals of those killed were expected in both Benghazi and Al Bayda on Friday. Such funerals could act as a catalyst for further protests.

Dozens Reported Killed in Libyan Crackdown

Troops took to the streets of Benghazi on Friday, Reuters reported but in Tripoli, the capital, Colonel Qaddafi himself made a brief appearance at the central Green Square, surrounded by supporters. He did not, however, address them.

Green is the color Colonel Qaddafi has adopted for what he calls his revolution, initiating a system under which he is ostensibly an ordinary citizen but in reality wields absolute power, buttressed by a powerful personality cult, tight controls on the media and a pervasive security apparatus.

Exiled opponents of the Libyan leader said on Thursday that protests mirroring the turmoil in the Arab world had broken out in several parts of the country on a so-called “Day of Rage.”.

But the ferocity of the government’s response emerged only on Friday when the advocacy group Human Rights Watch said security forces “killed at least 24 protesters and wounded many others in a crackdown on peaceful demonstrations across the country.”
