End UAE support for slavery in Libya

UAE Embassy, London. Sat 27 Jan 2018



 Police had come prepared for a rather larger protest at the United Arab Emirates embassy in Grosvenor

 Crescent at the North East corner of Belgrave Square

 One of the organisers speaks

 The Communist Party of Great Britain (Marxist Leninist) had produced placards for the event

 with the message 'Death to Imperialism! African Lives Matter'

 Of course Oil, shown with NATO sitting on it is only one of many resources from LIbya and others are more

 important in most of Africa.

 Africa is a continent rich in resources - minerals and people - which have long been plundered and produced

 much of the wealth of countries like this, and continue to do so

 Several of the speakers had visited Libya, and some were very positive about the changes Gaddafi had made

 to the country

 while some others were more sceptical.

 

 

 

 One placard reminded us of the campaign over 200 years ago against slavery with its slogan 'Am I not A Man and a Brother'

 A speaker reminds us that the slave trade and the repression of Black Africans also took place under Gaddafi

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 The African Lives Matter poster 'Speak Up for those who can't - No More Slavery'

 and their banner with its message 'Hands Off Africa!'
