Outside the Libyan ambassador's residence, a handful of protesters joined by the ambassador himself gathered to lend their support to their compatriots in Libya.
The group raised up a red, black and green flag on the ambassador's flag pole.
"The Libyan people fought the Italians for 30 years to get their independence. This flag represents our past and our future," he said.
The protesters asked media not to let Libya fall off the radar screen, and asked the U.S. government to freeze Gadhafi's assets and approve a no-fly zone over the country.
