Turkey holds local elections on 31 March amid uncertainty over the Kurdish dossier’s immediate future. If the main pro-Kurdish party, the People’s Equality and Democracy Party (DEM), wins the mayorships in the main cities of Northern Kurdistan, it remains to be seen whether the Turkish government will allow it to govern or, as has been the case for the past 8 years, will impose hand-picked trustees.

Awal, the popular project that wants to make the internet speak Amazigh

Catalonia is home to several minoritised languages. As is well known, there are two non-hegemonic languages traditionally spoken in the country—Catalan and Occitan. Recent migrations have brought in groups of minoritised language speakers. The largest of these is Amazigh, a language spoken in North Africa, where it has at least 20 million speakers, although it is in decline. In Catalonia, there are more than 100,000 Amazigh speakers. Their perseverance generates materials for learning and using the language. The latest example is the Awal project. Keep reading
