Berber Exploitation - Morocco

Reportage de TV ABC Australia. Novembre 1997

For centuries the Berbers of Morocco have been persecuted by their Arab masters. Today even their festivals have been hijacked. Miriam is fighting to keep her language and culture, whilst fellow militant Zaid claims the Arabs have 'stolen our history.' Etched out of a beautiful, yet inhospitable and rugged land, stands Imichil, where the annual marriage market or Moussem des Fiances takes Place. It's here that the Arab government has turned an exclusive Berber celebration into a tourist fest. Shy young brides wander around the market in traditional veils as streetwise city slickers sell trinkets and souvenirs to dollar laden foreigners. The Arabs have encouraged the press to come and soak up the traditional atmosphere It's turned into objects of curiosity in the process. Hussein and his wife to be, were forced to attend the festival in order to obtain a marriage certificate. Fascinating look at a culture being silenced and yet exploited for its rich and colourful traditions.

LET\'S THINK IN COMMON .!  
Hi,this morning I have come accross the above report and I find my self shocked somehow by the way the situation is viewed because as I see we should not take it as an opportunity to rise feelings of hatered between people living together,sharing common social,economic and political conditions to which neither arab nor amazigh common people assume any responsability ,but the existing policy that does not only ignore traditions but the dignity of people as well.
we are all suffering from poverty,unemployment,lack of real democracy and social class descrimination and not from THE VARIETY OFOUR ORIGINS AND ROOTS which enrich the culture of our society..
