Mass Atrocities in Libya
Genocide Intervention Network/ Save Darfur Coalition
22 February 2011
 
(…) After a week of protests calling for the overthrow of Libyan head of state Muammar al-Qaddafi, events in Libya have taken a dramatic turn in scale and violence. (…)
 
(…) Given credible reports of targeted violence against civilians, the newly merged Genocide Intervention Network/Save Darfur Coalition has called on the United States, United Nations, and other world leaders to embrace their responsibility to protect Libyan citizens. GI-NET/SDC is urging the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to authorize the following actions: 

Freezing of assets of top Libyan officials and the Qaddafi family;
Referral of the situation in Libya to the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court;
Creation of a mandatory Libya Recovery Fund into which all revenues from Libyan oil exports would be paid;
Establishment of a no-fly zone by willing countries, with the express aim of preventing continued operation of Libyan military aircraft if attacks against civilians continue. (…)
