Middle East Protests by dragon-sigma Middle East Protests by dragon-sigma
A new "democracy" stamp, because my older one did not include Libya.

(i've tried to add Syria + Jordan, but I can't find the file with the frames. :( )

- Libya -

The rebels are currently working on forming new governments on the cities they control. Meanwhile, Gaddafi makes mad speeches about drugs, and has sent his military along with African mercenaries out to shoot at and bomb demonstrators. The death tole is estimated to be anywhere from 300 to over 1000. The UN Security Council has recently voted unanimously to take action and at least impost sanctions. Many world governments, including the United States, have condemned the violence against protesters.

Some of Gaddafi's military commanders and associates have left him to support the protests.

- Stamp info -
I used the pre-Gaddafi flag because that's what the protesters (who as of 2/26/11 control most of the east but not Tripoli) are using.

(Yes, I know it's black-on-gray, but I wanted to keep the text location the same on all slides)

This version will be updated as protests arise.

The ability to protest, to change to a government that works, and for the people to believe that they are being actually represented, is exactly what freedom is about. Any country (Like Yemen, Tunisia, etc.) where such expression is not allowed- the people should force change, and create a better nation. :)
