Addis Ababa
African Leaders Urge Nato to Stop Airstrikes 

   Addis Ababa — The Africa Union (AU) security summit ended today in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, calling for an outright end to NATO-led air strikes on Libya. The 53 state bloc also said the air strikes in Libya have gone beyond the range of the UN resolutions mandated to protect civilians.

"As far as NATO air strikes are concerned, you will see a clear call by heads of state and government for those air strikes to come to an end," said Ramtane Lamamra, the AU's Peace and Security Commissioner on Wednesday.

"This is part of the requirement for political solutions to become possible," he said, adding, "The African Union shares the belief that what is taking place now goes beyond the scope of [UN resolutions] 1970 and 1973."

AU calls come as Libya's government proposed a new ceasefire and offered fresh talks with rebels.

Participants in the summit denounced the direct military intervention of western powers and accused the UN Security Council of double standards in their approach to resolutions to different conflicts..."

The whole region has been been pleading for NATO to stop the "humanitarian efforts" for some time. Is empire, conquest, and recolonization so hard to understand?   

Best, and glad to see you back and writing.

If the media did cover it, they might say that Yemenis are "pushing the envelope."

(What is yemeni for "we have to get ourselves an envolope?")
