Demonstrators in Algiers mark the second anniversary of the start of the popular movement, amid a heavy police presence.

Thousands of Algerians participated in a march in Algiers and other cities today to mark the second anniversary of the anti-government protest movement that ousted former President Abdelaziz Bouteflika.

The protesters chanted “peace, freedom and democracy” and raised banners that read: “A civil state, not a military one.”

It is believed to be the largest popular gathering in Algeria since the Hirak protests were suspended in March of last year due to the spread of the Corona virus.

The protest movement forced President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, who ruled the country for nearly 20 years, to resign in April of 2019.
