Muammar Gaddafi

African Revolutionary Writers, Part 9c

Colonel Gaddafi as he was

Muammar Gaddafi

Muammar Gaddafi led a small group of junior military officers in a bloodless coup d'├ętat in Libya against the pro-Imperialist King Idris on 1 September 1969. By the grace of god he is still the leader of that country. In fact, he is the longest-serving national leader of any country in the whole world at this stage.

Libya is a large African country on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, West of Egypt and East of Tunisia, by now much more developed than before.

Gaddafi and Mandela

Muammar Gaddafi’s 1975 “Green Book”, and especially the part on “Democracy”, is a very useful text for discussion in study circles, because it does not take bourgeois democracy for granted, but interrogates it, criticises it severely and to a considerable extent, rejects it.

Gaddafi is certainly and African Revolutionary Writer. In the other, much more recent piece for the New York Times, Gaddafi sets out a plain case (see the second linked download) for the “One-State Solution” in Palestine, which is the same in principal as South Africa’s one-state solution (“One person one vote in a unitary state”).

Muammar Gaddafi recently

Muammar Gaddafi is a wise man and a humble Muslim man of great energy, in spite of the sorrows that he has personally had to bear. He is loved by the revolutionaries of Africa.
