THOUSANDS of Algerians took to the streets on Tuesday as the Hirak movement for democracy continued its two-year struggle.
For the second week running, students and lecturers rallied for “a free and democratic Algeria” and an end to decades of military domination.
In the capital Algiers, police erected barricades to prevent protesters from reaching the central post office, which was the scene of the main pre-Covid rallies.
The Hirak has seen a resurgence in recent weeks, some two years after street protests led to the fall of former president Abdelaziz Bouteflika, who had initially said that he was standing for an unprecedented fifth term.
His successor Abdelmadjid Tebboune was elected in a widely boycotted poll in December 2019. He has sought to end the protests and claimed in a television broadcast on Monday that the demands of the Hirak had been met.
But protesters denied this and chanted: “Elected by fraud, appointed by the army” as they called for Mr Tebboune to stand down.
