(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL Montreuil - history, Algeria: A tribute to the anarchist Saïl Mohamed (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]
Sat, 22 Oct 2016 15:05:50 +0300
Relatively known character of the anarchist movement of the years 1930-1950, it was called
Saïl Mohamed. Under his real name of Saïl Mohand Ameziane, we just make it a public
tribute in Kabylia. ---- A few dozen inhabitants and residents of Tibane (Algeria),
political activists, trade unionists and associations, participated Friday, October 14,
2016, a commemorative day initiated by the youth of the village association Taddartiw
Taourirt tribute Mohand Ameziane Sail (Saïl Mohamed) 63 years after his death. ---- After
listening historians lectures, a visit was made to the birthplace of Mohamed Saïl, where a
commemorative plaque was affixed. His niece had made the trip to Algiers. ---- The
newspaper Liberté has a story of the day (below) and website Bejaia News , which ignites a
bit considering that Saïl had been "buried by the official Algerian history."
In reality, Saïl Mohamed was, until recently, known as historians of anarchism.
As anarchist - even libertarian communist, to be exact - it was to your fingertips. It was
even a "intransigent" of the movement, if we analyze his career and his writings:
activist AU platformist, union the CGT-SR anarcho-syndicalist (minority choice among his
comrades) volunteer combatant in Spain, militant FA after 1945 in Fontenis trend in
In Spain in 1936

He certainly fought tirelessly against colonialism, since the Hexagon where he was now,
but died a few months before the insurrection of Toussaint in 1954, and could not
therefore take part in the struggle for independence.
No doubt he would have been at the forefront, with activists and militants of the
Communist Federation libertarian , or those of libertarian North African Movement .

ACTION ACTIVIST ANARCHISTE
MOHAND AMEZIANE Sail
Liberty, 14-15 October 2016
The Taddart-iw sociocultural village association Taourirt, in the town of Tibane, daïra
Shemini (wilaya of Bejaia) yesterday organized a commemorative day in honor Mohand
Ameziane Saïl, an anarchist and independence activist misunderstood, native this locality
tribe Waghlis Ath in 1894, died in April 1953 in Bobigny, near Paris.
As such, members of the organizing association, headed Ameziane Hadjab, developed a rich
program of activities, including a clipping exhibition of photos and documents depicting
the life and work of the anarchist from the region, held in the town library of Tibane.
In the afternoon of the same day, this structure hosted a roundtable on this former
driver-mechanic, attended by academics, elected officials, trade unionists, political
activists and ...
Invited to speak at the meeting-debate, Professor Djamal Aissani, president of the
Association learned Gehimab University of Bejaia, has paid tribute to the youth of the
village Taourirt for taking the initiative to light the deceased Mohand Ameziane Saïl and
resurrect his work and thought. "It was perhaps the first French-speaking intellectual of
the entire region, since published several articles in the early 1920s attended one of
five schools located in the colonial tribe Ath Waghlis since 1885, "says Professor Aissani.
Many activists claiming the left, the image of the former mayor of Barbacha Mohand Saddek
Akrour, took turns at the microphone to highlight the struggle of this anarchist
disappeared, but also to put forward their ideas which are very similar to those held by
For Mr. Akrour, Berber activist and former prisoner of the 1980 events, the Amazigh people
is anarchist nature, by its social organization, its customs ... He believed that
anarchist ideas advocated by Mohand Ameziane Saïl begin to gain ground and eventually fail
by taking the above into this world in turmoil.
Note that the various speakers emphasized the need to continue this work of memory and
research to rehabilitate the valiant journey of this anti-colonialist militant.
Finally, it should be noted that this commemorative day ended with the inauguration of a
stele bearing the likeness of the late Mohand Ameziane Saïl, which now stands in the
middle of his native village Taourirt. This ceremony will be followed by a snack in honor
of the guests of the town of Tibane.
His biography is available on the website Maitron online.
