Union meeting of council of Algiers University
An extraordinary meeting is planned for the council of National Union of Higher Education Teachers, according to the Algerian opposition news source, <i>Liberte Algerie</i>. The meeting is related to the protests that have taken place surrounding the arrest of a student at Bouzaréah and accusations of acts of intimidation against students by the Algerian police.
There is intense pressure on university lecturers both from the side of the Algerian authorities and also from student pressure. The meeting is a step to creating a consistent and systematic strategy to deal with the contradictory pressures.
