  • Description

    ALGERIAN YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) CELEBRATED THE FIFTH ANNIVERSARY OF THEIR INDEPENDENCE. PRESIDENT BOUMEDIENNE MET MEMBERS OF THE FOREIGN DIPLOMATIC CORPS AND LATER WATCHED AN EXHIBITION OF DANCING BY ALGERIAN YOUTH ORGANISATIONS.

    THEME OF THIS YEAR'S CELEBRATIONS WAS "CO-OPERATION AND FAITH IN VICTORY". ALTHOUGH JULY 5 IS A PUBLIC HOLIDAY THROUGHOUT ALGERIA, YESTERDAY'S CELEBRATIONS WERE MORE SUBDUED THAN USUAL. THERE WERE NO FLAGS, NO BANNERS AND A FEW PEOPLE IN THE STREETS.

    THE EMPHASIS WAS ON YOUTH -- HUNDREDS OF YOUNG BOYS AND GIRLS, "CADETS OF THE REVOLUTION", PERFORMED COMPLICATED DANCE AND MARCH ROUTINES IN THE STADIUM EL ANASSER. IT WAS THE ONLY PUBLIC CELEBRATION OF THE ANNIVERSARY IF ALGIERS.

    EARLIER PRESIDENT BOUMEDIENNE, WITH GOVERNMENT AND PARTY LEADERS, ATTENDED A WREATH-LAYING CEREMONY. THERE WAS ALSO AN OFFICIAL RECEPTION FOR MEMBERS OF THE DIPLOMATIC CORPS.

    IN A PRE-ANNIVERSARY SPEECH PRESIDENT BOUMEDIENNE SAID ARABS SHOULD JOIN THEIR FORCES TO THOSE OF "ALL THE LIVING FORCES IN AFRICA, ASIA AND LATIN AMERICA, AND WITH ALL THE WORLD'S PROGRESSIVE FORCES."
