Greetings readers of Amazigh Voice
Those who like our newsletter or would like to discover it, here is is with almost all of the back issues scanned in pdf and uploaded to our Amazigh Voice page. We have issues all the way back to 1995. There are a few more years to do and the entire collection will be here. Go ahead and browse the issues from start to finish and discover the history of ACAA (its activities, its philosophy in a way) and of course to a large extent the history of Imazighen. If you happen to have a comment or suggestion, shoot us an email. Or even if you would like to contribute an article, that would be even fantastic.
Thanks for reading

Decharge Interdite
ACCA-Region 2 is pleased to announce the projection of a short documentary "DECHARGE INTERDITE " (Dumping Prohibited) a 26 min documentary by Tahar Yami. The documentary addresses the issue of wild trash dumping in Kabylie. In the last years unregulated and polluting dumps have reached a critical point. This is Tahar's attempt at sounding the alarm. The documentary has been screened at the 2011 Amazigh Film Festival in Tizi-Wezzu, Algeria and was given the Jury's Special Prize in the category Amazigh Panorama. Tahar Yami is an idependent photorapher and video author and this documentary is his first. Prior to this Tahar worked for La Maison de la Culture in Tizi-Wezzu, the AJBF association in Paris and BRTV. Tahar will be present to discuss the documentary and the environmental question in Kabylie

This event is free.

Synopsis in French: Dans le voyage en pays kabyle, le paysage féerique tant vanté, côtoie un décor désolant fait de gigantesques montagnes d’ordure et de toutes sortes des détritus jonchant les faussées et les accotements débordant jusque sur la chaussée. Ces amas sauvages semblent s’installer durablement partout dans l’indifférence et la complicité de tout un chacun. Les populations ont tendance à s’adapter à la prolifération de ces saletés et les autorités paraissent impuissantes devant ces situations qui défient toutes règles d’hygiène, de santé et de protection de l’environnement.
