This is how Libyans -civilians and security forces-treat sub-Sahara (black) Africans, refugees, migrants, and foreigners
CAIRO, EGYPT —Sub-Sahara African nations, especially the sixteen-member countries in the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), namely; Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania (left 2002), Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Togo, and Burkina Faso (which joined as Upper Volta); the sixteen-member states of the Southern African Development Community (SADC), namely; Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, South Africa, Swaziland, United Republic of Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe, and the six countries in the African Great Lakes region in eastern Africa, namely; Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda are urged to halt all and any diplomatic, economic and social ties with Libya with immediate effect for the total disregard and the harsh and inhumane treatments against sub-Sahara African and blacks in general.
Sub-Sahara African migrants and refugees are beaten and plugged with knives by Libyans every day. See video below:
Sub-Sahara African Nations Must Kick all Arabs Out of their respective countries.
A significant number of the Libyan population and most Arabs are categorically obnoxious, atrocious and do not deserve any cordiality for their evil actions and thinking against other races. The treatment against sub-Sahara and black Africans in Libya is a general and consistent pattern of evil and subjugation across most Arab nations. This practice of putting sub-Sahara Africans in servitude also occurs in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq and Iran and there is no way that the governments in those countries can claim not to have any idea that these evil practices are happening without the knowledge of their respective security forces, intelligence services, and political leadership.
The horrific video shows how evil Libyans treat sub-Sahara African migrant women and refugees transiting through Libya en route to Europe for asylum and safety. Other victims are sold as slaves to Libyan farmers and others looking for servants etc. A Libyan forcing a black lady to open her mouth while he urinates.
Sub-Saharan Africans have always been vulnerable to abuses in these Arab countries. Most are sold as slaves while others are treated like animals either because they are migrants or because they are in transit to Europe as refugees escaping wars, poverty and natural disasters.
Globe Afrique has gathered detailed information that the Libyan authorities have been fully aware of these abuses on the sub-Sahara African or black migrants and transit commuters in Libya, but the authorities deliberately refused to act as the abuses go on. These incidences occurred in Libyan cities, towns, and communities.
However, according to Amnesty International, these ugly acts against sub-Sahara Africans or blacks have arguably become even more precarious considering the prevailing security vacuum in the country, particularly given that there is a widespread availability of weapons and the proliferation of armed militias acting with impunity and outside the framework of the law.
Sources say most foreign nationals in Libya are now at the mercy of whichever militia hold them as slaves. In addition to the current reign of militias, Globe Afrique has been briefed that during Colonel Muammar al-Gaddafi’s rule, sub-Sahara Africans and blacks, in general, were at risk of arrest, indefinite detention, torture or other ill-treatment and exploitation.
According to some international briefings, Libya does not recognize the right to seek asylum and has yet to sign the UN Convention on Refugees. This means that in practice asylum-seekers and refugees are treated like irregular migrants.
Many sub-Sahara Africans who are given this inhumane and evil treatment by the Libyans are from Nigeria, Niger, Burkina Faso, Togo, Mali, Ghana, Senegal, Mali, Chad, Cameroon, Guinea, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somalia.
There are several reasons why many of the migrants are eager to enter Europe, and why they are escaping their respective countries. Among the reasons include the lack of jobs, poverty, disease, and conflicts. The lack of jobs and income tops the main reasons for the large pool of migration from sub-Sahara Africa.
Globe Afrique’s fact-finding discovered that bad governance, corruption, and misrule account for poverty and other deplorable situations in Africa.
Libya used these sub-Sahara migrants and flee refugees as forced laborers. They also stored them in various detention centers. One such center in Gharyan is run by a local militia. It holds more than 1,000 foreign nationals from sub-Saharan African countries that include Niger, Nigeria, Sudan and Chad. Eyewitnesses say several of the detainees were arrested at nearby checkpoints while they were making their way to the capital Tripoli, about 100 kilometers to the north.
In the Gharyan detention center, men, women, and children are held in overcrowded and unhygienic conditions.
In fact, at all detention centers in the capital, Tripoli, in Ganfouda and Kufra, the situations were the same despite having security officers and guardsmen there.
According to Amnesty International, in Gharyan detention center, Somali and Eritrean migrants and refugees are released once their embassies confirm their nationality and sign “attestations” – a highly problematic practice for those fleeing persecution in their home country. The prison director told us that if these detainees are re-arrested they are “fined” 1,000 dinars (around US$780). No money, no freedom.
Several European nations have also turned a blind eye to these atrocities and inhumane treatment against sub-Sahara Africans just like they did during Colonel al-Gaddafi’s rule when they consistently turned a blind eye to human rights abuses against sub-Sahara Africans in Libya because it helped them stem the flow of migrants to their shores.
In the meantime, asylum-seekers and migrants are left to languish indefinitely in Libyan detention centers, where they remain vulnerable to exploitation and abuse.
In the past few months, U.S. President Donald J. Trump, Sr., argued that people who think like these terror-minded Arabs do not belong in any civilized community of humanity and, so he was halting their entrance into the United States temporarily. The rest of the world opposed President Trump not realizing that the Arabs are intrinsically and extrinsically evil.
They have no value for human life once it is not their own. There is a need, and this is the time that the world stands up to Arab’s hypocrisy, deceit, and evil. This is the time that sub-Sahara Africa confronts the evil in these people. The Libyan authorities must be held to account. In additions, sub-Sahara African nations should, in no way, shape, and form, give any due respect or accommodations to Arabs who come and occupy places of comfort, influence, and power in several sub-Sahara Africa nations.
