Gaddafi’s ex-spokesman: Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi has widest support heading into Libyan elections (E1089)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Moussa Ibrahim, the former spokesperson for late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. He discusses the overturning of the decision to ban Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi (the son of Muammar Gaddafi) from running in the Libyan presidential elections, current polling for the elections, why he believes the polls are wrong, why he thinks Saif Al-Islam is the only candidate who is not aligned with a foreign power, and much more. Finally, we speak to Brian Peterson, author of ‘Thomas Sankara: A Revolutionary in Cold War Africa’. He discusses the African revolutionary’s famous battle against foreign aid, the IMF and World Bank. He also talks about France’s role in destabilising Burkina Faso’s revolution, French involvement in the coup against Sankara, the revolutionary’s fight against imperialism, and much more.
