Strong Images: Gaddafi Graffiti

Since he was captured on October 20th, I've mostly managed to avoid the graphic images of Muammar Gaddafi's near corpse.

Despite newspapers and websites pushing them to their front pages, I'd much rather direct my eyeballs at the anti-Gaddafi graffiti ubiquitous in Libya during the civil war.

A nice antidote to the bloody, pitiful, sensational images. This street art seems to have a lot more to do with the situation of the Libyan people - their past sufferings and new hopes.
