The second issue of this Mediterranean literary review is a special one on the Amazigh icon Lounes Matoub. It includes articles on Lounes Matoub's life, his work, including poems translated to French. The issue also includes interviews of his sister Malika and his wife Nadia. This publication could not come at a better time. This month the Amazigh people will be commemorating the tenth anniversary of Lounes's assassination. Matoub's family and the entire Amazigh community in North Africa and around the world is still grieving for the loss of one of their dearest. His assassins have not yet been brought to justice and the contemptuous neglect shown by the Algerian authorities when it comes to serving justice in cases involving Amazigh people only makes the Amazigh angrier and more determined.
