Why is the Irish Left silent on the Holocaust of Sirte?
international | anti-war / imperialism | opinion/analysis Thursday October 06, 2011 19:23 by An Draighneán Donn
Sirte has become the Guernica of the 21st century. The bombing it has been subjected to surpasses Gaza and even Fallujah for its criminal targeting of civilian homes, hospitals, utilities such as water, gas and oil, etc. And yet, while the people of Sirte face extermination by gangs who have already lynched and ethnically cleansed thousands of Black people, the Irish Left maintains a cold silence towards this agony. Why?
The people of Sirte are now completely surrounded by hostile forces. From the sea, they are bombarded by NATO war ships. From the air, death is rained down on them in the form of high explosive, white phosphorus and depleted uranium, by land, they are surrounded on three sides by racist lynch mobs and Nato "special forces." These mobs firing randomly into a crowded city from tanks and heavy artillery. And yet, the spirit of the people of Sirte has not been broken. The spirit of No Pasaran holds the line.
