PLAYGROUND WAR

LIBYA |

Although the Libyan revolution is over, divisions still run dangerously deep in Sirte….

Nowhere is this more damaging than in the school playground, where young friends are now sworn enemies.

Sarah is too scared to attend school after being bullied by her pro-Gaddafi peers.

My classmates came and insulted me for singing the new anthem.

Many former friends are now opponents as they fight proxy wars for their parents’ views in the ongoing political battle in Sirte. Trying to resume their lives amid the ruins, many are deeply traumatised by their experiences of the revolution and are struggling to move past the violence they witnessed.
