Pandemonium in Libya
With all this pandemonium going on about in Libya, people running about for their lives and wishing they thought about wholesale life insurance before this all started, a lot of our countrymen are itching to go home to their families away from all the chaos and confusion brought about by the uprising against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.
The Philippine government, after being accused by critics for their late reaction, has finally begun mass evacuation of its nationals from Libya. Using a Greek ferry docked at Benghazi, they will charter an estimate of more than 30,000 Filipino overseas workers. With a lot of others trapped in oil and gas work sites, the Migrante president Garry Martinez is pleading for the Philippine government to do something about it.
