Please submit good English translations here. We will post ex-prisoner accounts, other eyewitnesses to Gaddafi crimes, tapped phone calls from the former Gaddafi regime, statements of captured Gaddafi forces, and solidarity statements. Please also send in a source link - a video, audiboo, twiitter account, facebook page, or state "Live Phone Call" if it was a personal contact. Also please state if you want a name or twitter account tied to the translation, otherwise we will not put one up. Also, we love music video translations as well; they will be linked to our solidarity media page.
