Algeria: Protests planned nationwide April 26

Event

Opposition protesters have gathered in Béjaïa (Kabylie) on Wednesday, May 13, despite ongoing coronavirus disease (COVID-19) movement restrictions and a ban on protests. Online videos surfaced of protesters wearing protective masks with signage supporting the "Hirak" movement.

Further associated protests are to be expected in Kabylie and in other cities across the country over the coming several weeks. A heightened security presence is likely in the vicinity of all protests. 

Context

Protests to denounce the current political system have continued despite the election of President Abdelmadjid Tebboune on December 12, 2019. Demonstrators are still calling for civil and popular sovereignty and have rejected the recent presidential electoral process. The protest movement has been officially ongoing since February 23, 2019.

Advice

Individuals in Algeria are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and anticipate a heightened security presence and localized disruptions to business and transportation around protest sites.
