In the Libyan uprising, this place seems to be taking on a similar significance to Tahrir Square in Egypt. This is the commercial centre of Tripoli, and has landmarks such as the Red Palace in addition to shopping markets.

Because of its location and symbolic importance, its name has always changed along with political circumstances. First, it was the "Italy Square". Then "Italy" became "Independence" after a monarchy replaced the Italians. Now, after rebel forces took over (in August 2011), it has unofficially become "Martyrs Square".

What name was it previously known by, a name that is deeply associated with the Gaddhafi regime?
