The Amazigh in Libya are pinning great hopes on the state-building process currently taking place, especially after having contributed significantly to the revolution of February 17, including the liberation of Tripoli.
The Amazigh thankfully did not wait for the fall of Moamer Kadhafi to take initiatives to revitalise the Tamazight language and culture. While the revolution was advancing, the Amazigh were introducing the Tamazight language and the Tifinagh characters in liberated areas.
After the revolution, they did not wait for the formation of the Ministry of Education to introduce Tamazight in schools. They launched an Amazigh TV channel.
Now is the era of state-building. The most important debate in Libya today is on drafting a new constitution. In such a context, all Libyan Amazigh are working to have Tamazight recognised in the constitution, as was the case in Morocco, which acknowledged Tamazight as an official language of the country.
