BERBER

BERBER IN LYBIA

The death of Gaddafi awoke hopes for freedom in many Libyan tribes. This was the case especially for the Berberian tribe located in the western part of the country which has always been oppressed. Their fighters have decisively contributed to the fall of Gaddafi and of Tripoli even though the revolution began in the east of the country. However, even in the young constitution of Libya the Berberian culture and its language are not being recognised.
