Nuha Dadesh: A Libyan in Libya’s standpoint!



     A tragedy? A misery? A perpetual tale of horror? I honestly don't know what I should      call life in Libya! And a desperate cry from my soul apathetically shouts from within, "does it really matter what you should call it?" 

     Because, do I, a Libyan in Libya, really matter to the rest of the world? And that surges feelings of betrayal and envy which build up a hostility for the rest of the world! But, what does that even mean?-"The rest of the world"? Aren't we all the rest of the world to someone? 

     When the revolution was claimed a victory, the supporters were ready to tolerate whatever subsequent consequence. However, humans can only tolerate so much pain and despair before crashing down. People started taking sides. It's not black and white anymore; it's the whole spectrum now! 
     It's the countless and seemingly never ending misfortunes that we as Libyans, as humans, suffer on an hourly basis that plagued our land with fatigue and hopelessness. For starters, there's an enormous impact that power cuts have on Libyans' psychology, economy, and political standpoints! Besides the modern basic human right that gets snatched away, a part of us does too! There are so many needs for electricity that are crucial to everyday life that make losing it for hours on end intolerable. Therefore, a new type of darkness ensues; a preeminent darkness of the soul! In addition, the unbearable lifestyle that comes about from these cursed power outages makes the nation of little worth to "the rest of the world!" Which lead to my contemporary understanding of a term I never understood in history class....
Inflation- something that no one wishes to come across in a lifetime! With a collapsing government, or in our case-governments, there's only the expectation of worsening circumstances! Prices skyrocket. Nothing is worth its price anymore. Everything is so expensive. And poverty is widespread. And poverty gives birth to thievery. And the cycle of corruptness in a lawless land resumes till a miracle from Allah comes and breaks it. 
     Apathy follows; the kind that accelerates the rate of the crippling of our society. 
     And that's what "they" wanted. Whoever "they" are! The bad? The evil? The corrupting "rest of the world"?

رواد رضوان: أين المفر؟

أحياناً نمر بتلك الايام التي نحتاج فيها للحديث عن "ضيقة الصدر"، وهذه التدوينة عبارة عن "تنفيس" لا أكثر ولا أقل، لا أتوقع أن يقرأها أحد ولا أدعي أن هناك من قد يسيفيد منها، ما هذه إلا فضفضة عن النفس خلال اواخر ساعات العمل الأخيرة من هذا اليوم. 
عزيزي feel free to leave
ضاقت بنا الدنيا فإلى أين المفر..  في بلادنا لا نجد الفرص، نسافر الدنيا بحثاً عنها، فنجدها، ولكن لا نطالها 
لماذا؟؟
لأنك عزيزي في أعينهم خطر.. أي خطر؟ تتسأل... كلانا لا يدري ...  تجد فرصتك ولكن تاتيك الأخبار "عفوا عزيزي لقد تم رفض وجودك هنا"  ..كأنهم يقولون "أنت خطر"  ةلكن بكلمات جميلة 
ما علينا ..
ولكن أين المفر 
إلى بلاد اللا فرص  أم إلى ذل الغربة 
قد لا تفهم المقصود مما ذكرت.... لا تحزن ... فأنت لا تعيش حيث أعيش 

Rawad Radwan: Best of #LibyansAgainstSlavery

A couple of days CNN published an undercover video shows a slave auction in Libya, it was so sad to see this happening in my beautiful country by a group of criminals. I was speechless, I couldn't process what i saw. 

few hours from the release of the video, Libyans on Twitter started #LibyansAgainstSlavery to express their sympathy with the victims of slavery, others expressed their opinions on what we can do to fight this, while other apologized to the world, so here's the best of it:

I am Libyan, I work for IOM, me and my colleagues are working hard in daily bases to provide all kind of help & assistance to migrants who are struggling in detention centers all over Libya, the ones who work in slavery trade are the minority here not us. — مـــ ع ـــاذ ⵎⵓⵄⴰⴷ ⵣ (@M_Abouzamazem) November 18, 2017
