Thousands of people took to the streets of Algiers on Friday to protest against the government for the 20th week in a row, marking the 57th anniversary of Algeria's independence from French rule.
Footage shows protesters marching and chanting, while holding signs and waving the national flag.
«The ruling gang is still here. [Interim President] Gaid Salah is still here. We will not leave. We... Еще will continue to walk every Friday. We will not leave until the Algerian people liberate themselves and have their independence,» one demonstrator said.
According to reports, protesters managed to break the police cordon and advance on the main post office. Around a dozen protesters were reportedly arrested.
The protests, dubbed the 'Smile Revolution', began in February after 82-year-old then-President Abdelaziz Bouteflika announced he would be running for a fifth term in office. While he dropped his bid and ultimately resigned in April, the protests continued, demanding a complete political overhaul.
