Where now for Libya after the downfall of Gaddafi's regime?

Independent action by Libyan workers, youth and poor vital to prevent revolution's derailment: While the defeat of the last major forces defending Gaddafi's dictatorial and increasingly megalomaniac regime was widely welcomed, the way in which it fell means that clouds now hang over the future of the Libyan revolution, writes Robert Bechert.
