After Gaddafi, Libya splits into disparate militia zones09 Jun 2012 It’s not independence but democracy that the people want, says Hanna El Gallal, a human rights activist. “We got rid of Gaddafi, but not the regime,” she tells me. She points to the secrecy of the [US-installed] National Transitional Council, which, despite promising democracy, keeps its meetings secret and refuses even to disclose its full membership. “We didn’t do a revolution and our people did not die to bring a new dictatorship.” When the NTC does issue decrees, Libyans are aghast;last month it issued law number 37, making it a criminal offence to criticise the “17 February revolution”.
