The celebration of the 58th anniversary of the independence of Algeria is an opportunity to “meditate on the path of militancy and struggle” of the Algerian people against colonization, said the magazine El Djeïch in its latest issue, recalling that this anniversary was “marked with a special seal” with the repatriation of the remains of “its heroes of popular resistance”.
“The celebration of the anniversary of Independence is an opportunity for us to mark a halt in order to recall 58 years of national sovereignty of our country, as it invites us, more than ever, to meditate on the path of militancy and struggle of a people who fought relentlessly against a colonization of settlement, a people who gave birth to men who endured the most difficult trials, facing any adversity and a generation that led one of the greatest revolutions in history,” wrote the magazine in its latest editorial.
The Army Review considered, in this regard, that “no one can deny that the celebration of the 58th anniversary of Independence was marked by a particular seal in the full meaning of the term, so much so that in these historical moments, Algeria has welcomed the remains and remains of its heroes of popular resistance, after their repatriation” from the Museum of Man in Paris where their skulls were displayed for more than a century and a half.
Commenting on this solemn event, the El Djeich magazine observes that “the valiant martyrs of the resistance received an unprecedented official and popular welcome, in recognition of the sacrifices made so that Algeria could trace its path to freedom and victory, before their burial in the Algeria of the lofty Chouhada or Martyrs”.
“An Algeria whose people enjoy independence and sovereignty, as desired by the martyrs of the resistance who lit the way for the generation of November who took upon themselves the responsibility of unleashing the liberating revolution,” it was added, noting that “what we could certainly be most proud of in this regard is the attachment shown by the people to their national memory, as well as their deep emotion in the face of a great event, the work of martyrs who chose to die and who have reached eternity”.
“This shows, once again and categorically, that our country has won its independence thanks to the enormous sacrifices made by the Algerian people throughout the colonial era,” the magazine said. It stressed, in this context, that “just as the accession to independence and the recovery of national sovereignty 58 years ago were the fruit of a heroic epic” that made “millions of martyrs”, “their heirs, elements of our National People’s Army, are today working with courage and self-sacrifice to eradicate the vile remnants of terrorist groups”.
“The battle our country is waging today at all levels is no less important than the battle waged by our people to free themselves from the brutal colonial yoke, which enabled them to wrench their freedom and to recover the country’s national sovereignty,” it said.
For the Army magazine, this battle “is the natural extension and, just like the youth of yesterday, conceived, planned and led the liberating revolution of which it was the fuel, the new Algeria relies on the category of young people invited to develop their potential in various fields, to put their skills and knowledge to the service of national development and to catch up with the times in order to build a strong Algeria in a world where there is no place for the weak”.
“Thus, it will be our young people, throughout the national territory, and without any exaggeration, who will rid our country of dependence on hydrocarbons and enable it to inaugurate a new stage where efficiency and creativity will have a decisive role,” El Djeich Magazine further underscored.
