The protest camp sprang up on Tuesday in the city’s Maidan al-Shagara (Tree Square) after thousands of people joined demonstrations in Benghazi and Tripoli to demand transparency from the interim government.
The protesters are calling for the NTC, led by Mustafa Abdul Jalil, Muammar Gaddafi’s former justice minister, to make its membership and voting decisions public.
“We want to know who is the NTC,” said Salwa Bugaighis, a Benghazi lawyer who quit the government earlier this year. “We want all the names.”
