Libyan Civil War 2011 VIOLENCE is the best strategy to make a change!

Thinking About Libyan Revolution.

What was challenging?

First of all, finding my essential question about Libyan Revolution was hard because we need to find some really deep understanding question. The most challenging for me in this project was finding the all questions I had. I want to know that who is doing this?, and why someone is doing this? I'm the only student in this class researching about the Libyan Revolution. I really worked for my answers of the questions I had. If I had some more students with me then it has been a lot better. At last, researching about all types of revolutions was also challenging for me.

What was interesting?

The interesting part about this project was during researching about my Revolution. I got really interesting information when I researched about this Libyan Revolution. The articles out there, they helped me so much to get the good idea about this Revolution. Those ideas made my progress great and easy.

How did this project change your outlook on revolutions?

This project really helped me not getting good things to know about this revolution. It gave me so much information that I don't know. I don't know that this Revolution occurred. I haven't listen anything about this or maybe this happens long time ago.

Why did you choose this modern day revolution to study?

I chose this Revolution to study because I know about other Revolutions like Syria or Yemen. I have seen a lot about them. And they are happening now a days that's why. Then I made a decision to study this Revolution because I don't know nothing about this Revolution.

Causes of Libyan Revlotion

Beginning with the Arab Spring protests of 2011, which led to the First Libyan Civil War, foreign military intervention and the ousting and death of Muammar Gaddafi. With the arrival of the rebels in Tripoli, on 21 August of the year 2011, The National Transitional Council (NTC) assumed control in most Libyan areas, following a grinding war involving the international community, represented by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), as well as the involvement of other individual countries such as Sudan with its security and military forces, and Qatar using its money for the benefit of the National Transitional Council (NTC) to overthrow the Gaddafi regime.


Muammar Gaddafi himself, who had governed Libya for a period of 42 years, was killed on October 20, 2011, allegedly by Libyan revolutionaries inside the Libyan territories. The events that started in February and ended in October 2011 had a substantial impact on national, regional and international level. The Sudanese actions arose as a result of the negative effects of the Gaddafi regime’s policies towards the Sudan, especially its impact on its national security, as the Gaddafi regime provided logistic support to the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM)

Libya agrees to pay $35 million to compensate victims of the bombing of a Berlin nightclub in 1986. Gaddafi feared a military coup against his government and deliberately kept Libya's military relatively weak. On 5th of February, between 500 and 600 demonstrators protested in front of Benghazi's police headquarters after the arrest of human rights lawyer. Gaddafi's forces were documented using ambulances in their attacks.[167][168] Injured demonstrators were sometimes denied access to hospitals and ambulance transport. The government also banned giving blood transfusions to people who had taken part in the demonstrations. 600–700 protesters were killed in Green Square in Tripoli on 20 February.

unsettled whether or not the rebels’ overthrow of Gaddafi’s government following the fall of Tripoli in August 2011 changed the nature of the conflict again. Some academics believe that as the rebels were now the legitimate and effective government of the state of Libya, the conflict was "deinternationalised" and thus non-international in nature again.The ongoing conflict (or conflicts) ended for the purposes of legal qualification with the conclusion of hostilities in Libya in the end of October 2011.


Similarities: Both leaders were harsh and brutal as well. both the Libyans and the Colonists did not agree with the leader's government. Libyan ruler ruled for 42 years and civilians grew extremely tired of him. Furthermore, their governments had sent forces to harm the civilians. Different Escalations Protestors from Libya and America used propaganda to encourage their country to fight for what was right.

Differences: The Libyans got their freedom by killing their dictator, Moammar Gaddafi, but the Colonists created a document called the Declaration of Independence telling the British that they were now free. The Colonists are still free to this day and they are now called Americans. Washington leads his men to a battle for freedom. Colonist show off their anger by dumping the tea into the ocean, later King George gets back with a harsh crackdown.
