Her Voice Counts
Salma Taghdi aka Asma Trabulsi, 22, stands at her family’s house with the radio that her and her father used to listen in on the movements of Qaddafi’s troops movements since the start of the Libyan Revolution in February. They recorded everything they heard in a desk calendar, writing the specific date and time. They notified Universities that they were going to searched and people who were going to be detained. Salma also participated in a demonstration, but didn’t return after unarmed protestors were being shot at with live rounds and being detained. Instead she created a Revolutionary Newspaper with two of her friends to inform the citizens in Tripoli of daily updates with the information she gathered from the radio.
