Hundreds of thousands of people filled the streets of the capital Algiers, joining millions all over the country in mass protests on Friday 11 October. Demonstrators are opposing the old regime’s attempt to hold presidential elections in December without changing the political status quo. They continue to demand a civil, not a military state, and reject selling off the nation’s resources through a new financial law and hydrocarbon law which if approved by parliament will mean a big blow to Algeria’s economic sovereignty.
