BERBER - AZAWAD

THE OPPORTUNITY OF AN INDEPENDENT TOUAREG STATE

The first Touareg rebellion against the Malian army took place already in 1963. Only after many uprisings, which then took place, they obtained small concessions on behalf of the Malian government; still they were never implemented. At the beginning of 2012 the Touareg rebels of the MNLA (Mouvement National de la Libération de l'Azawad) succeeded in eventually expelling the Malian army from the north of the country and in proclaiming an independent state named Azawad.
