  • Description

    ALL WAS QUIET IN ALGIERS, JUNE 26, AS THE TRUCE BETWEEN OAS AND FLN REMAINED EFFECTIVE AND MOSLEMS LOOKED FORWARD TO THE JULY 1 REFERENDUM ON ALGERIAN SELF-DETERMINATION.

    WHILE ALGERIANS IN TUNISIA, MOROCCO AND FRANCE HAD ALREADY CAST THEIR VOTES - THE SEALED BALLOT BOXES WILL BE OPENED AT ROCHER NOIR ON JULY 1 - THE PEOPLE OF ALGIERS WERE STILL BEING EXHORTED BY POSTERS AND SLOGANS TO GIVE THEIR "OUI" TO A MOSLEM-ADMINISTERED ALGERIA MAINTAINING ECONOMIC LINKS WITH FRANCE.

    PRINTED PLACARDS CLAIM "ALGERIA RECOGNISES AS HERS ALL THOSE WHO ARE PREPARED TO PARTICIPATE IN BUILDING UP THE COUNTRY" AND ALGERIA NEEDS ALL THOSE OF GOOD WILL WITHOUT DISCRIMINATION", WHILE CRUDELY PAINTED SLOGANS ON WALLS AND VEHICLES DEMAND MORE LACONICALLY "VOTE YES-FLN".

    MEANWHILE, THE EXODUS OF EUROPEANS CONTINUES. CROWDS CRAMMED THE SQUARE OUTSIDE THE MUNICIPAL OFFICES, QUEUING TO OBTAIN ALLOTMENT OF A PASSAGE TO FRANCE. IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT MORE THAN A QUARTER OF ALGERIA'S EUROPEAN POPULATION HAS ALREADY LEFT THE COUNTRY.
