The uprising’s impact

Libyan Independence flag

At a Libya awareness day in Manchester I was able to speak to British-Libyans about how the uprising in Libya had affected them and the community they live in.

The footage of the fighting in Libya used in this video cannot be entirely independently verified.  It was sourced from the Misurata Freedom Group, which is the most verifiable source of user generated content within Libya, or from brief examples of the type of images major news organizations (in this case AlJazeera and Russia Today) were broadcasting. I deemed this footage to be editorially justified as the sources were as reliable as possible and I believe them to be effective representations of the kind of footage the UK’s Libyan community was watching in the early stages of the fighting, before independent journalists began filming.
