The myth of ‘African mercenaries’ in Libya has been used throughout the conflict to demonise the Libyan state, justify NATO intervention and to cover up the relentless racist rebel campaign of mass detention, lynchings and atrocities directed at black Libyans and migrant workers. Amnesty International have stated several times that the accusation of ‘African mercenaries’ being used in Libya against rebel forces is baseless. Despite no evidence the lie persists in the western media and the phrase ‘alleged mercenary’ has been continually used in an attempt to give context to the racist atrocities committed by rebel forces against black Libyans and migrant workers.

NATO in August openly admitted to the use of mercenaries in the war against Libya. However the hypocrisy of the western media should be noted when they refer to NATO mercenaries as ‘private security’.
