We Don't Have Parties

Party iconOur task isn't easy. We don't have parties, we don't have a constitution, we don't have political organizations, we don't have an effective civil society. We have to create a completely new state and we have to do it in the middle of a war and revolution.

-- Mahmoud Bousalloum, a graduate student and political organizer in Libya, New York Times, 7 March 2011
