Thousands of Algerians returned to the streets of Kherrata on the 2nd anniversary of the birth of the Hirak movement, which peacefully brought down the military regime in the country. The first demonstration occurred on the 16th of February in 2019, with massive anti-government protests then spreading across the country.
Protesters demonstrated against the military government that took control after the protests that toppled the old leader. Many say that they simply took over to take power for themselves, not to pass the reforms that people wanted. The response towards protests has only validated the opinion that the military dictatorship will not cooperate with the people.
Dozens of protesters took to the streets for a 15th day of demonstrations in Elizabeth City to demand justice for Andrew Brown, an unarmed Black man killed by police officers with assault rifles. Police closely trailed the small demonstration, but no arrests occurred due to a lack of confrontations.
