  • Description

    WORKERS FROM FACTORIES, OFFICES AND OUTLYING COUNTRY DISTRICTS PARADED THROUGH THE MAIN STREETS OF ALGIERS YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) FOR THE TRADITIONAL MAY DAY CELEBRATION.

    THE MAIN THEME OF THE PARADE WAS TO REINFORCE SUPPORT FOR, AND PARTICIPATION IN, ALGERIA'S INDEPENDENT SOCIALISM AND THE POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC ROLE OF THE WORKERS IN THE LIFE OF THE COUNTRY.

    ARMY UNITS, DOCTORS, NURSES, YOUTH GROUPS AND WORKERS' ORGANISATIONS TOOK PART IN THE PARADE, AND THE THEME OF THE PLACARDS ARE INCREASINGLY INVOLVED IN THE MANAGEMENT OF STATE CONCERNS. THE WORKERS ALSO CALLED FOR THE DEFENCE OF ALL THAT HAD BEEN ACHIEVED BY THE REVOLUTION.

    THE PARADE WAS REINFORCED BY THE PRESENCE IN ALGIERS OF DELEGATES TO THE THIRD ALGERIAN WORKERS' CONGRESS, WHICH OPENED SOME DAYS EARLIER.
