Les états nations de Tamazgha
 Iles Canaries



Date : 2002-04-20


The situation of political oppression and the denial that the pouvoir in Algeria has exerted on the Amazigh population gave birth, in 1980, to a movement of revendication that affected the entire country. For several months, protests, meetings, and strikes against the repressive policy of the regime and in favor of the official recognition of the Amazigh culture and language occurred in Kabylia (a primarily Amazigh zone of Algeria).

The detonation of the vindications was the prohibition of a conference on ancient Kabyle poetry, which was going to be offered at the University of Tizi-Ouzou by the writer, Mouloud Mammeri.

The great repercussion felt throughout Tamazgha from this popular movement of April 1980--Tafsut Imazighen (Amazigh Spring) has been a manifestation of sentiment and a consciousness of ethnic unity that had never before existed.

This sentiment was also felt in the Canary Islands, manifesting itself in the publication of articles and books, realizing courses in Tamazight, and awakening a great interest in safeguarding the archaelogical and cultural patrimony of the Canary Islands.

Thus, today, feeling ourselves to be participants due to our common origins, and having solidarity with the revendication movement for the defense of the Tamazight culture, we celebrate this cultural day.
