Tens of thousands of Algerians take to the streets of Algiers to demonstrate for the second consecutive week since the contentious election of a new president, insisting on a total revamp of the political establishment.

Since February 22, the streets of the capital Algiers have been filled with protesters every Friday, first calling for the ouster of president Abdelaziz Bouteflika then pushing for a complete overhaul of the political system in place since Algeria's 1962 independence from France.
