5th July 1962 - 2015. Today marks the 53rd anniversary of Algeria’s independence from France.

Never forget the 1.5 million martyrs slaughtered by the French.

Never forget the 200+ Algerian civilians drowned at Seine by the French.

Never forget that France still doesn’t want to recognise the damage of their colonisation that still affects Algerians to this day.

Tfou 3ala la France, nous sommes Algériens et fiers! Allah yer7am ga3 shuhada tawa3na 🇩🇿
