"the Manifestation" sometimes when a group of protesters moved towards the presidential palace: police fired tear gas and set up barriers. Some demonstrators threw stones against the police."

"the Demonstrations took place despite a protestförbud which have been in Algiers since 2001. Activists gathered lost via social media, and even in the city of Annaba, 40 miles east of Algiers, was organized demonstrations. According to the French-language newspaper El Watan, thousands of people gathered also in the city of Ourgla."

"the 81-year-old Abdelaziz Bouteflika, who ruled Algeria since 1999, announced a couple of weeks ago that he is standing again in the elections in april. The protests are directed both against Bouteflika, whose health has been a concern since a stroke five years ago, and one against prime minister Ahmed Ouyahia, who is loyal to Bouteflika."
