Impunity for Past Abuses
Over 100,000 Algerians died during the political strife of the 1990s. Thousands more were "disappeared" by security forces or abducted by armed groups fighting the government, and have never been located, dead or alive. Perpetrators of atrocities during this era continue to enjoy impunity. The legal framework for that impunity is the 2006 Law on Peace and National Reconciliation, which provides an amnesty to security force members for the actions they took in the name of combating terrorism, and to armed group members not implicated in the most heinous acts.
Kabylia is the area whereby the Anti-Berber policies of the colonial French and their local puppets failed most; the Berbers are not a minority either in Algeria or in the other countries of the Atlas.
The Berbers constitute the totality of the local population; some of the Berbers forgot their native tongue, due to the racist, Pan-Arab, colonial policies of the French and the Algerian tyrannies.
In fact, Arabic speaking or Amazigh speaking people in Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Libya and Mauritania are all Berber.
