Protests Held Across Algeria for Ninth Consecutive Friday

Protesters in Bordj Bou Arreridj, Algeria, unveiled a large banner reading, “Justice is the basis of governance,” on April 19 – the ninth consecutive Friday of nationwide anti-government protests. On the same day, Human Rights Watch issued a report on the recent police crackdowns on the protests, writing: “Algerian authorities should rescind the 2001 decree banning all demonstrations in Algiers and allow people to exercise their right to peaceful assembly anywhere in Algeria.” Credit: @walidmberk via Storyful
