This peaceful gathering resulted in 13 people being taken into custody, interrogated and maltreated. Public gatherings are otherwise guaranteed in the Algerian constitution.

A Press Release Philadelphia, March 11th 2013

Members of the MAK and CMA (The World Amazigh Congress) gathered last Sunday to remember March 10 1980, a date when the Kabyle students of the University of Tizi-Wezzu decided to take to the streets to protest the suppression of the Amazigh culture in Algeria, sparking the first opposition protest in Algeria since independence.

This peaceful gathering resulted in 13 people being taken into custody, interrogated and maltreated. Public gatherings are otherwise guaranteed in the Algerian constitution.

Such actions by the government of Algeria are casual and demonstrate once more the nature of a system that is bent on crushing the people of Algeria and in particular the people of Kabylia who continue to resist. These arrests are intended as intimidation to stifle any attempts by civil society to act on its own and serve as reminders that the government is in control of everything.

Public expression of any kind when not sought by the government is alien and cannot be tolerated.

TIWIZI-USA strongly condemns these methods and calls on the international community to take note and denounce this behavior.

TWIZI-USA stands behind the MAK and CMA activists and assures them of its indefectible support.

TIWIZI-USA calls on all the Kabyle people in Algeria and the Diaspora to rally behind MAK and CMA and fight for their dignity.

TIWIZI-USA is a nonprofit organization whose objective is to come to the aid of Kabylia.
