On this day the Second of March 1977, it has been promulgated the creation of People's Power and the birth of the First Jamahiriya in history. The Libyans became the first in this world to have and possess the reigns of power in the era of masses where every individual enjoys freedom and the power to take decisions.

The Libyan people feel immense proud while seeing all the surrounding advancements and developments and the brisk movement of building and construction witnessed by the Great Jamahiriya in these days in all fields and levels... We avail ourselves of this occasion to extend our felicitations and best wishes to the promoter of this unprecedented achievement in the history of mankind... and we pledge and undertake before him to proceed in this path, preserve and safeguard it.

This historic date is the beginning for liberating all people from the yoke of dictatorship, despotism, oppression and injustice ... and from all means of traditional governance.

The Libyan people are full of pride and glory because from this pleasant land came the thought and the seed... By the grace of Allah and determination of Brother Leader Muammar Al-Qaddafi, the people's power is materialized, such that no other power but the power of people.

To you, the most cherished men, we reiterate our wishes and glory.

The workers at the General Posts and Telecommunications Company avail themselves on this occasion to present their congratulations to the Great Brother Leader and offer Him this release.

Al Gathafi Mediterranean Project 6+6

l 1 stamp: value 750dh - stamp size mm.52x37 - sheets of 28 stamps



(text from the official booklet)

Nowadays, some statements are common talking on the so-called Mediterranean Union Project and 5+5.. what are they?? Tees without crossing! Within the speech by Leader Muammer Al-Gathafi; leader of Great Al-fateh Revolution, in the 10th Anniversary of establishing Assembly of Coast & Desert Countries in Africa, he crossed the tees saying: "I support such idea, provided that such Assembly shall embrace only those countries neighboring the Mediterranean Sea from Africa and Europe, to be connector between the African & European Unions. As for Asia, it is another continent neighboring this sea from the west, and it suffers from conflicts and problems among Kurds, Turkish, Palestinians, Israelis, Lebanese, Syrians & Jordanians. Consequently; it is a region not eligible that we sit with in the Mediterranean".

He stressed objections of this project whose name has been changed to be (Union for the Mediterranean)... emphasizing that we never accept that North Africa to be embraced to the European Union which never permit Southern Europe to enter any frames out of European Union. He drew attention that if they would submit map of Roman Empire which is colonizing one, then we also have our own maps to submit. Besides: he explained that the map of empires Aghlabis, Carthage, Ottomans & Fatemise were extending to entire Europe, namely; even Cecile, Rodus, Marseille, Corsica, Sardinia, Lambidosa, Fentalatia & Spain, all subordinate to us. He drew attention that (Union for the Mediterranean) is a new repetition of the failed Barcelona.

He reiterated that in the time we conserve good relations with France, Italy, Spain, Portugal & Malta neighboring the Mediterranean, and stick to 5+5 which we suggested to be 6+6 by embracing Egypt and Greece and welcome cooperation with only Africa and Europe as unions, we oppose parting Africa and attaching its North to Europe; we never allow this, nor work in this task. He then emphasized the necessity that such attitude must be clear before the peoples of North Africa and Europe.
