Testimony by Lizzy Phelan: “The war on Libya is a war on Africa”
VOLTAIRE NETWORK | 14 OCTOBER 2011
FRANÇAIS

Back in the UK, after several months spent in Libya covering NATO war crimes and uncovering mainstream media lies, freelance journalist Lizzie Phelan continues to fight for truth and justice on behalf of the Libyan people. Her testimony below is a gripping example of her commitment.

Lizzie Phelan spent her last days in Libya – where she was reporting for PressTV – trapped in the Rixos Hotel, together with Thierry Meyssan, Mahdi Nazemroaya and two other members of the Voltaire Network team.

She said a Western-backed genocide is taking place in Libya and there are no independent journalists left on the ground to cover the story.

  • Excellent post and Lizzy Phelan video, this is my first visit to your site and I’m impressed, I’m following your RSS feed from now on.

    Great work, thank you.

  • And the capture, torture and murder of Gaddafi was indeed a war crime. The NATO rebels knew that and I am sure that they did not do it without the go-ahead from President Obama and the European NATO allies.

    The western call for an investigation is just a move to set up a situation in which the west, and the UN will be absolved from blame, for the war crimes committed by their Libyan collaborators.

    It is not the first time however that the United Nations has been involved in the torture and murder of an African Leader. Do you remember Patrice Lumumba, the progressive anti-imperialist, anti-colonialist leader of the Congo? Well, to prevent him from reaching political power in his country, the UN, the US CIA, the British and the Belgians, in 1962 collaborated to derail the progressive anti-colonial movement in the Congo, and kidnapped, torture and murder Mr Patrice Lumumba.

    Mr Lumumba was beaten and bloodied and driven through Kinshasha on the back of a pick-up truck, and then murdered by the military forces of Mobutu Sese Seko, a pro western despot who was installed in power in that country and ruled the Congo with an iron hand, opened up its vast mineral resources to western exploitation, and looted the treasury for more than four decades.
