>·Don't dissolve the militias but rather transform them into a national 
>army under the control of the councils! Smash the remaining elements of 
>the regimes military and security apparatus!
>·No to any privatisation of the oil industry! For the nationalisation 
>under workers control of the central sectors of the industry, the 
>financial sector and the service industry!
>·Expropriate the foreign multinational assets! The Western government 
>must give back the assets of the Gaddafi regime to the Libyan people!
>·No to any NATO military and advisors in Libya!
>·For an election of a revolutionary Constitutional Assembly!
>·For full citizenship rights for the migrant workers! Equal wages for

>·Equal rights for all national minorities like the Berber and the Tuareg 
>and Tebu people! Down with Arab chauvinism against them! No
