ALGERIA - Students demonstrate in the capital

Tens of thousands of young Algerians marched April 12 in the streets of Algiers. From several universities and colleges, they protested against the downgrading of qualifications and poor functioning of the university, calling for the resignation of Harraoubia Rachid, Minister of Higher Education. The police violently dispersed the students, making a hundred injured.

The journal welcomes this engagement. Students "have succeeded where parties and other political associations have failed. They marched in the capital. This is the first time since announcing the lifting of emergency rule [February 24] that a march in Algiers. Whatever their number, the key is to have succeeded in marching through the streets of Algiers, who broke with this kind of event since 1991, "said the daily.
