Freeing 3000 Political Prisoners from Surman's Institution of Rehabilitation and Reform
August 14th, 2011
Although this video needs no translation to share in the jubilation of the freed political prisoners, here is what is said:
"Tonight to Tripoli! Tonight to Tripoli!
You are not prisoners anymore!
You are good people, good people.
This is the province of Surman, on Ramadan. The date is August 14th, 2011.
We thank God! You are safe my brothers, good people of Surman. You are free! You are innocent, good people of Surman.
God is great! Raise your heads - God is great!
Here is the prison in Serman. Raise your head, man! Here is the province of Surman, the day of the prisoners' liberation in Surman.
God is great!
The revolutionaries of El Rayne are liberating the prisoners of Surman, my brothers!"
One of the prisoners: "I was captured in Tunisia, ..in the port of Jerjis."
"Raise your heads. Takbir! (That means, "Say 'God is great!'" )
The prisoners say: "God is great!"
