The fall of Qaddafi's Tripoli to Libyan rebels has raised a host of new questions and intensified existing debates about the nature and fate of the Libyan uprising. As the peaceful uprising in Libya shifted towards an open rebellion in the face of a violent response by Qaddafi's regime, various calls for intervention by the Libyan people mobilized and polarized world powers, solidarity activists, and everyday observers as to the nature and legitimacy of the Transitional National Council (TNC), the UN Security Council resolutions, and the NATO intervention. Khalil Bendib spoke to professors Ali Ahmida (New England University) and Gilbert Achcar (School of Oriental and African Studies), while Malihe Razazan spoke to Africa Correspondent David Smith (The Guardian). Some of the issues discussed include the build to up to the collapse of Qaddafi's hold on Tripoli as well as the tensions resulting from an indigenous movement against authoritarian rule calling on former colonial powers to intervene on its behalf.
This interview was conducted as part of KPFA's Voices in the Middle East and North Africa Show.
