Thousands Protest in Algeria for 50th Consecutive Week Demanding President’s Resignation

HeadlineFeb 06, 2020

In Algeria, thousands of protesters took to the streets of the capital Algiers Tuesday demanding the resignation of President Abdelmadjid Tebboune. Mass anti-government protests have been demanding the ouster of the country’s political elite for nearly one year and forced the resignation of Algeria’s longtime former ruler Abdelaziz Bouteflika in April. This is one of the protesters.

Imen: “We are protesting to completely change the regime — not to change half of it and then half of the gang stays with the president, who is humiliating us in front of all nations.”
