Colonel Muammar Gaddafi - My Fake Diary
Sunday, 9 September 2012
I read this by an Ann Marlowe:
I first visited Zwara on August 23 of last year, just as the local revolutionaries were liberating their city from the now deposed regime of Col. Muammar Qaddafi.
Today, the yellow, blue, and green Berber flag, forbidden under Qaddafi, flies alongside the new Libyan flag, and there's a local radio station broadcasting in Tamazight, the Berber language.
One year after the revolution, things are looking up in Zwara-but it's clear that both the local understanding of democracy and the national government are very much works in progress.
