Berber Spring

Spring can be a good thing at times..
flowers and trees blossoming all over the place but it can also be a bloody thing like what happened in 1980 in Algeria when the political regimes censured professor Mouloud Maari from giving a lecture on the Amazigh ancient and poetry. Of course they allow any other things to take place. Maamri was not allowed to speak.
Imazighen were already sick and tired of he oppressions of the algerian regime. More than 200 students started the protests to which La Police reacted violently and there were many people killed and many others injured or arrested.
Now it is a day to remember all those who gave their lives to the case.
