A protest was held by the 19 February movement on Saturday against corruption and poor living conditions in the country, especially in terms of lack of cash and the high prices of the dollar in the parallel market.

Hundreds of peaceful protesters rallied in the streets of central Tripoli demanding politicians and officials in the west of the country to leave, and chanting "get out, we have had enough."

The movement called on the Attorney-General to intervene and hold accountable the beneficiaries of the appropriations and the counterfeiters who ravaged the livelihoods of the Libyans, and led the country to this dire state, according to the protesters.
