Local councils in the Amazigh (Berber) areas of Libya have declared Sunday, January 13, 2013, as a regional non-working public holiday.
The same councils have called on the Transitional National Council to declare the Amazigh New Year as an annual nationwide non-working public holiday in Libya.
Similar calls have been made over the years by the Berber minorities of neighboring North African countries (2007-01-10). The Berber/Amazigh are the native inhabitants that populated North Africa before the Arab invasions that began in the 7th century.
