42 Years of Oppression in Libya

Personal accounts of human rights abuses in Gaddafi’s Libya

A collection of 32 video recorded interviews conducted with women and men at various locations in Libya in 2012 and 2013, ’42 Years of Oppression’ aims to shed light on the diversity of the human rights abuses that took place during the four decades of Gaddafi rule that preceded the 2011 revolution.

The uprising turned bloody and violations were commitments by members of armed and political groups across the spectrum, all of whom had lived in Gaddafi’s Libya, where property could be confiscated, bodies tortured, and dissidents assassinated with impunity.
