Kabylia

Published: August 7, 2012, Author: JayTaber

As reported by Karlos Zurutuzi at IPS, the Movement for the Autonomy of Kabylia — an indigenous resistance to colonization in Algeria — has a history extending back to the seventh century, when Arabs invaded the territory of the Amazigh (Berbers) across North Africa. Having fought both the Arabs and later French invaders, the six million Amazigh of Algeria now experience relentless oppression by the state, as well as constant threats from Islamic fundamentalists.
