As reported by Karlos Zurutuzi at IPS, the Movement for the Autonomy of Kabylia — an indigenous resistance to colonization in Algeria — has a history extending back to the seventh century, when Arabs invaded the territory of the Amazigh (Berbers) across North Africa. Having fought both the Arabs and later French invaders, the six million Amazigh of Algeria now experience relentless oppression by the state, as well as constant threats from Islamic fundamentalists.

We're fighting for our lives

Indigenous Peoples are putting their bodies on the line and it's our responsibility to make sure you know why. That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage. By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
