Why?: Because the people of Libya are being massacred for their basic human right to live freely and peacefully. Turning a blind eye and remaining silent, especially when atrocities like this are happening — is wrong. No matter how you square it — you’d want to know if something like this was happening in your country. You’d want everyone to care, to understand, and to raise awareness. Give them the same courtesy and respect. Don’t be silent.
Why should I care about Libya? It doesn’t affect me!: It does affect you. Not only are the people of Libya suffering, but the unrest also shakes up the stock market and the global economy. The industrial average goes down, investors back out, and the world falls into a worse financial situation than it already is. So yes, it affects you. It effects the entire planet.
But why should I reblog/retweet? It’s not going to matter!: Yes, it does matter. We reblog/retweet to raise awareness about the situation in Libya, as well as the unrest in Yemen, Bahrain, Iran, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, and other areas. Reblogging one thing leads to someone’s awareness. Retweeting one thing leads to someone else’s. You are spreading information, and you are spreading the option to do something about it — whether that be calling the Libyan Embassy in Washington D.C. for more information (1-202-944-9601), or arranging peaceful protests here to support the Libyans.
