In Biggest Protest Yet, Algerians Demand Bouteflika Quits

In Biggest Protest Yet, Algerians Demand Bouteflika Quits

Hundreds of thousands of people protested in central Algiers on Friday, March 15, in the biggest demonstration against President Abdelaziz Bouteflika’s 20-year rule since unrest began last month.

Bouteflika on Monday reversed a decision to stand for another term after mass protests against him, but stopped short of relinquishing office and says he will stay on until a new constitution is adopted.

Algerians quickly rejected his offer and demanded that the 82-year-old president hand over power to a young generation of leaders who can create jobs and stamp out corruption.

Protests have peaked on Fridays. They are also taking place in other cities.
