Algerian Berbers Demonstrate Against Government TIZI-OUZOU,
Algeria (Reuters) - About 100,000 Berbers took to the streets Saturday
in Tizi-Ouzou, Algeria's largest Berber-speaking city, in protest
against the arrests of Berber militants in restive Kabylie.
The march coincided with the 22nd anniversary of what activists
call the Berber Spring, marking an uprising in Kabylie against the
central government in 1980 to back demands for cultural and political
rights from the government in Algiers.
