by Gerald A. PerreiraOct. 20, 2017, marks the sixth anniversary of the martyrdom of Muammar Qaddafi, revolutionary Pan-Africanist and champion of the Global South. The execution of Muammar Qaddafi and those who fought alongside him and the destruction of the Libyan Jamahiriya is one of the greatest crimes of this century. The Libyan revolution was more than a social, political and economic revolution; it was nothing short of a spiritual and cultural revolution. Indeed, there would have been a fierce resistance to the current recolonization and re-carving of Africa if Muammar Qaddafi were alive and the Libyan Jamahiriya were flourishing as before. We stand in solidarity with the family of Muammar Qaddafi and the families of all the martyrs.
