Peaceful marches staged across Algeria for fifth consecutive Friday calling for system change


ALGIERS – Peaceful marches have been staged in the capital Algiers and many other cities of Algeria, for the fifth consecutive Friday. The demonstrators demanded “change of the system” and called for “the preservation of the country’s unity,” APS reporters said.

Under a rainy sky, hundreds of demonstrators, of which may draped in national flags, started early in the morning to gather in Algiers downtown. Several gatherings were reported in the main Post Office la Grande Poste, the Place du 1er-mai (‘1st May Square) and Maurice-Audin Square.

In the early afternoon, thousands of citizens marched through the main streets of the capital, holding the national flag and repeating the same slogans demanding the “deep change of the system”, the “respect of the Constitution” and the “rejection of the extension of the president’s term.”

The marches, overseen by large number of policemen, have been marked by the presence of many national political figures and men of culture, as well as remarkable presence of media organizations.

In other cities, thousands took to streets to demand the “immediate departure of the system in place” and calling for the “respect of the people’s will” under the watchful eye of police officers deployed to avoid excesses.
