Algeria – The battle of the future

If Africa were to have a revolutionary people, presumably they would be Algerian: a people of warriors since the dawn of time; an ethnically diverse people that will never give up. After so many internal and external wars, their thirst for freedom is intact. There is still a great deal of injustice. The findings are staggering for this giant African country: unemployment affects 70% of the young generation.

The Algerian youth is preparing quietly in a country that does not resemble its neighbours, such as Tunisia, Egypt or Libya. The new Algerian generation is searching for an identity and, following the example of their parents, once the opportune moment comes, it will make itself heard throughout the country, the entire continent, all around the world.

Djamila is 26. She lives in a small village with her parents, her two brothers and her four sisters. Her internship as a lawyer allows her to rub shoulders with activists from several parties as well as with trade unionists. She has gradually been developing her own convictions about the future of the young Algerian generation. Her admiration for the courage of the young Tunisians has given her the hope that the young Algerian people's aspirations to be finally regarded as citizens will bear fruit.
