Borders established by colonial powers in North Africa created new nations but devastated the region’s indigenous people, according to an activist from Libya.
Akli Sh’kka said his people, the Tuareg, are still experiencing the fallout from what he characterises as a “crime.”
Mr Sh’kka heads the Imouhagh International Organisation for the Sake of Justice & Transparency based in Brighton in the United Kingdom.
He was in New York for the annual session of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues which comes to a close on Friday.
Dianne Penn asked him about Tuareg identity and what prospects he sees for his people under Libya’s new unity government.
