Farid Adly

Farid Adly, pseudonym of Ibrahim Ali Kashbur is a Libyan writer and journalist. In 1966 he won a scholarship to study in Italy. In the '70s he started his journalistic activity, collaborating with several magazines. In the '80s he carried on the project of "Radio Shaabi", radio broadcast in Arabic by Radio Popolare. During this period he was the Milan's secretary of the League for the Rights and Liberation of Peoples. In 1999 he moved to Sicily and founded "ANBAMED", a bilingual press agency in Italian and Arabic, which was hosted during the Iraq war on the Corriere della Sera website, obtaining strong appreciation from critics and the public. His commitment to solidarity with the liberation struggles of the oppressed peoples was constant, but at the same time his rejection of war and terrorism was strong.
