Wider Image: Portraits from the frontlines of global protests
Amiri Yacine, 26, a student, poses for a photograph during a protest rejecting the December presidential election and against the country's ruling elite in Algiers, Algeria, November 15, 2019. "I am protesting against injustice and dictatorship," said Amiri Yacine, 26. "People are protesting around the world. In Lebanon, Iraq Chile, France, Hong Kong and Haiti, because of injustice and corruption," Yacine, who has joined rolling demonstrations since February in opposition to the shadowy elite that has controlled Algeria since independence in 1962, feels his demands are universal. "We want to build a new Algeria...we want free media and a total respect of human rights. Also, we want jobs and infrastructure," Yacine said. "My message to protesters is just be peaceful - be wise and keep calm. Fight the system with good ideas, because they don't have ideas." REUTERS/Ramzi Boudina SEARCH "GLOBAL PROTESTS" FOR THIS STORY.
