Voice from 23 yr old female protester today: “We’re not living like humans…You feel..jailed..trapped..bleak..silence..sad..had enough” [Audio]
“I’m in Tripoli and we are trapped…I’ve seen all my brothers and sisters…all the innocent lives…and who are they killed by, not by Libyans. But by hired mercenaries…to kill them…This is not protest, this is war. Libyans are being killed inside their own…”
Audiocast ends abruptly at this point. Crowds, and children, can be heard in the background before her voice cuts off.
