Flight from Benghazi: Video
Video from our ignominious retreat. Narrative to come.
As the first of Qadaffi’s forces reached Benghazi on March 19th, Small World News was pressed to evacuate the city and head east. A grim day was lightened by the actions of people along the road, who offered water, snacks, and the very keys to their homes to the columns of fleeing cars. Anti-Qadaffi demonstrations took place in every town we passed, a continuation of the non-violent resistance that has been the foundation of the movement since February 17th.
