#AceWorldNews – BENGHAZI – April 06 – (Reuters) – Public and private sector staff including oil workers went on strike in the Libyan port city of Benghazi on Sunday, protesting against worsening security and demanding the resignation of parliament whose mandate has expired.
Traffic at Benghazi’s international airport was halted by the strike. As a result, a Turkish Airlines plane was turned away, according to state media.
Oil companies, universities and schools also closed, heeding a call by political groups for a day of “civil disobedience” to demand better security, witnesses said.
Government forces have failed to improve security in the port city where car bombs and killings of police and army officers have become part of daily life.

#AceNewsServices says according to recent SkyNews the UK is already preparing for what should be a hot, dry summer. Either that, or the request of London mayor Boris Johnson to distribute water cannon on the street of the capital may be an indication that at least some major municipal centres are preparing for a jump in civil disobedience and are looking for appropriate, “non-lethal” means to contain it.
SkyNews reports that “the London Mayor says the weapons will be used only in “the most extreme circumstances”, however, there are fears the cannon could be deployed to break up small-scale legitimate protests. Mr Johnson says the water cannon are necessary in case there is a repeat of the summer riots of 2011.”
