  • Description

    Algerian President Houari Boumedienne met thousands of student volunteers at a sports stadium in Algiers on Monday (7 July) to boost the nation's land reform programme -- and ensure that the revolutionary spirit which overthrew French rule, is passed onto the younger generation.

    The students are leaving their books behind this month to join in the country's "agricultural revolution".

    The Government says that over ten-thousand from all three Algerian universities will spend their summer holidays on remote, sun baled farms, helping not only in the fields, but also by organising co-operatives, and dealing with banks and local authorities.

    The Algerian National Youth Movement is responsible for the programme, and is known as the "Summer Voluntariat". And it has the personal backing of President Boumedienne who encourages the younger generation to join in building up their country's economy.
