Libyans in St. Catharines

Last month I did a two-week internship at the St. Catharines Standard newspaper. My favourite story was this one on a local Libyan family that was spearheading a campaign to raise awareness for the violence happening in their home country. This story ran in late February, before the UN resolution that authorized a no fly zone over the country. The people I was speaking to were advocating for no fly zone at that point, but then it seemed like a lofty dream. I can imagine they are happy to know their friends and family are at least safe from bombs dropping from the sky. But undoubtedly they have other worries to replace those as the violence drones on there, with no early end in sight.
