The police then violently dispersed the demonstrators in humiliating way denying all the legal rules, besides an attempt to arrest Said Elferouah (a member of the Coordination Committee of the International Congress of Amazigh Youth and grabing the mobile phone of the journalist Ali Al Ansari.
Overall, we denounce violations of rights freedoms in countries of Tamazgha (North Africa).

 KraD (Three): condemnation of the weak position of the Moroccan State in front of the Libyan dictator regime, and the latest manifestations of this submission to blackmail appeared clearly in the silence of the state about the arrest of two researchers from the Royal Institute for Amazigh Culture, which were on a scientific mission in Libya. And considers the state and all its organs including the institution to which they belong professionally responsible for their detention under mysterious circumstances for more than 17 days without any public initiative to clarify this matter.

KkuZ (Four): we call for all organisations, bodies and democratic activists to support legitimate demands of the Amazighe Movement, and to organize a campaign of struggle and protest to expose intimidation and repression practiced by the Libyan racist regime against all the defenders of freedom and diversity, led by activists of the Amazigh Movement and organizations of Libyan Tuaregs in Libya or abroad.

Chris,Thanks. Sounds perfectly reaslnaboe to me although your position could easily have been prefaced with In a perfect world . (although in a perfect world situations like Libya shouldn\'t happen, right?)The problem is that it\'s not a perfect world, it\'s the real world, and people are being killed. Even if there is some kind of in-region third party mediation/peace initiative at play it\'s not doing the people at risk much good if the killing continues and especially not if the talks falter.I understand that the possibility of the establishment of a no-fly zone by some non-regional players is being discussed or may even be in effect toute-suite (I\'m too lazy to google the latest news now). If it happens is it better than what you describe? Probably not for those who, some might say, are looking at the world through rose-tinted glasses far from harm\'s way, but it might very well be a god-send for those poor sods in the cross-hairs. Evil only triumphs when good men do nothing , or whatever the saying is, may sound trite to some but I don\'t think I\'m going too far out on the limb by saying that people would much prefer being saved from harm by action, rather than be, for all intents and purposes, sacrificed while others sit around talking peace or simply making grand soliloquies of moral indignation. What would a Tutsi in Rwanda have preferred and what did they get? The world is a messy place and sometimes messy solutions are needed for messy problems. At least until the Martians land and take over.
