After the many retaliations, personal revenge cases and human rights violations witnessed in the aftermath of the revolution, from both sides, the people of Libya are calling for justice, reconciliation and rule of law to progress forward, united as one Libya.

“National Reconciliation is about Justice. Its about the rejection of the punishment of whole communities based on the actions of it’s individuals” 

“It is for generations to come; after the court cases , after the trials and long after the prison sentences. It is for tomorrow , not for Today.” – FGM
