The Amazigh flag was adopted by Amazighs from all Tamazgha countries and the diaspora at the 1st General Assembly of the Amazigh World Congress, held in Tafira, Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, on August 30, 1997.
Since then, the Amazighs, wherever they live, have proudly displayed their emblem on all occasions: festivals, cultural and political activities, public events, etc. The Amazigh flag is the supreme symbol of Amazigh identity but also a symbol of unity, resistance and struggle for the rights and fundamental freedoms of the Amazigh people.
On the 22nd anniversary of its adoption, the CMA launches an urgent appeal to all Amazighs to solemnly celebrate "Amazigh Flag Day" on August 30, 2019.
This year is a special year for the Amazigh flag because the head of the Algerian army and head of the state has decided to ban it and several dozen people are currently in prison for carrying it publicly.
To express our attachment to our emblem, to express our solidarity with the detainees of the Amazigh flag, to denounce the abuses of the Algerian military dictatorship, the CMA asks that the Amazigh flag be raised on the facades and balconies of homes and all public and private buildings of the Amazigh people and at all public activities on 30 August 2019.
Everyone, individually and/or collectively, is called upon to take initiatives in their region, city or village to pay tribute in joy and dignity to our beloved emblem.
Long live the Amazigh flag!
Long live free Tamazgha!

The Guardian : Let's banish the term 'Arab world'. What does it mean anyway? The prestigious British newspaper the guardian had published an interesting article entitled “Let's banish the term 'Arab world'. What does it mean anyway?” by the Australian journalist Neheda Barakat. Here is the entire article for North African readers: Labelling 381 million people from 22 countries as monolithic ‘Arabs’ is misleading and inaccurate. With conflicts raging on in Syria, Palestine, Yemen and Iraq and a diaphanous calm in the rest of the Middle East, the language we use in covering this region is not only hindering our understanding of the issues, but it is also misguiding strategic policies....
