The UAE has been playing a suspicious role for many years in carrying out the plots of the Arab Spring anti-revolution in every country where its waves move to suppress the will of peoples to demand freedoms and democracy.
In this regard, the UAE practices multiple violations in Algeria in an attempt to curb its popular revolution and push for the failure of demands to end the military rule of the country and create a civilian state.
Algerian blogger Amir Dizad accused Algerian and Emirati intelligence services of muzzling the voices of Algerian voices demanding state civilization, pointing out that the Facebook administration closed its page number 13 because of its opposition activity.
“The same entities that fought him under the resignation of President Abdelaziz Bouteflika when he was publishing files and pictures of corrupt people, including images from within the palaces of government, are the same ones who are fighting him today,” Amir Dizad said.
He said: “Our battle with the intelligence services that report on us and submit them to the gang leaders at home, and to the UAE abroad, and specifically to the Facebook Department of North Africa and the Middle East in Dubai, and these devices are the same and if the leaders change.”
He added: “They closed me several Facebook pages that were classified as the first on the Moroccan level and the seventh on the Arab level, for reasons that are not understood, just because I uncovered documents of major corruption files, and contributed with others to uncover the truth to the Algerian public, and weakened the regime’s arguments in denying the corruption of its leaders.”
“Algerian activists around the world are preparing to organize vigils in front of Facebook offices in a number of capitals of the world, in order to raise their hands from our pages where we only call for a civil state and a democratic transition,” he said.
Popular demonstrations in various Algerian cities have not stopped since the end of February, demanding the activation of Articles 7 and 8 of the constitution and the departure of all the former regime’s leaders.
The Algerian authorities’ decision to go to a presidential election on December 12 failed to persuade the demonstrators to stop their popular movement, but deepened the rift between supporters of the army sticking to the elections and the movement demanding comprehensive change.
Former Algerian diplomat Mohamed Larbi Zeitout published on his Facebook page a number of videos of a number of demonstrations in Algiers and various major Algerian cities, and raised slogans rejecting the elections in the current situation.
Throughout the protests in Algeria, the demand to reject any interference from the UAE in the internal affairs of the state remained strongly present as a way to the success of their movement calling for the departure of all symbols of the regime.
Among the many slogans raised by Algerian demonstrators, journalists who covered these protests often spotted anti-Emirati slogans condemning their interference in their country’s affairs.
The protesters carried banners reading “Down with the UAE” and “No to the UAE in the country of martyrs” along with other banners attacking France as well.
Although the UAE has not formally declared a position on what is happening in Algeria, Algeria’s affiliated media have been quick to devote extensive coverage to these protests.
Some writers and tweeters expressing the UAE’s official position seemed more cheerful and cheerful about Algeria’s protests than their counterparts in other Arab countries, raising fears among Algerian activists.
