World News: Algeria At The Time Of Its History

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Has Algeria finally entered its Arab Spring? As protesters' demonstration, refusing President Abdelaziz Bouteflika's candidacy for presidential elections, increase, Algeria is entering a decisive turning point in its history: the age of emancipation.

Faced with the extent of the contestation related to the will of President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, a 82-year-old sick man, to stand for a fifth term (the former member of the National Liberation Army (NLA) was elected for the first time in 1999), why not imagine that this giant of the Arab world, which has all the assets (natural resources, demography, geographical exposure, ...) to become a great power is finally released from the chains of the army that have been hugging him since 1962 under the guise of a democratic republic that bears only the name?

The opportunity would finally arise for this country, rich in a poorly exploited oil windfall and gnawed by an endemic corruption, which had seen its Tunisian, Libyan and Syrian neighbors emancipate themselves respectively from the authority of Zine elAbidine Ben Ali , Muammar Khadafi and Hosni Mubarak in 2011?

Weariness and General Interest

In fact, everything seems to contribute to it. The weariness of the Algerian people, especially its youth largely majority (45% of the total population, 42.2 million Algerians, is under 25 years, 22.5% under 30 years) *, pressed for to send the inheritance of the fathers of the revolution of Houari Boumediene to Ahmed Ben Bella while passing by Abdelaziz Bouteflika, the will of the latter to extract the country from a sclerotic immobility.

Arguing businessmen and politicians often more concerned with their special interests than the general interest and finally the need for Algeria to return to the twenty-first century by getting rid of this image of post-colonial nation unable to grow without the help of any ally attracted by the natural resources of the country.

And the challenge to attest to this desire for change. But strangely, while the Algerian people refuse to see President Bouteflika present again, the opposition remains weak and silent, unable to present an alternative solution.

However, and history has proved it many times, any poorly apprehended and poorly controlled popular movement can give rise to overflows or abuses of unknown magnitude.

Algeria, which has long wounded the wounds of the war of independence and the civil war, is now ready to turn to a democracy worthy of the name where its people, long infantilized and kept under perfusion thanks to the oil revenues which were only hiding a social and economic reality that has become unbearable, seems to be clearly wanting to end its current political regime to finally feed on fundamental freedoms such as freedom of expression or the press.

Maturity and Privileges

However, in view of the first demonstrations, slogans launched, the will of demonstrators to be in no way recovered and to register in a pacifist logic, it appears how much this movement allows to exhale a maturity and a density that the regime the current must now more than fear. Remember, the young and cultured Algerian population, despite a breathtaking education system, fed on the mistakes made and the experience of past generations.

But beyond this youth, it seems that the whole Algerian society that claims its exasperation incarnated by the refusal to see again President Bouteflika to present himself again.

For why would he represent himself except to ensure the survival of a political, social and economic edifice that is shaky and outdated where prebends and privileges have overtaken the community. Some, in the sense of the formula more or less sharpened, would say that history is running.

However, if it never stops, she likes to feel his pulse by jolts sometimes more violent than others, as evidenced by the demonstrations and the embryonic revolution that emerges in the streets of Paris. Alger. The time has come!
