About Algérie, quand les Ultras révolutionnent
Since the beginning of this unprecedented popular movement that has invaded the Algerian street, the Ultras (football club supporters) have had a front row seat to this protest. Used to shouting their rage in the stadiums and chanting slogans against evil life and "hogra" for a long time, this revolted youth decided to occupy the street and helped to untie the languages. Unlike the dark hours of violence in Algerian stadiums, since February 2019 there has been a peaceful osmosis in the protest between the Ultras of different clubs and the Algerian street.
