How Algerian Football Fans Helped Topple A Dictator

Mass anti-government protests have rocked Algeria for the past three months now after an ailing Abdelaziz Bouteflika announced his intention to run for a fifth presidential term.

Football supporters were the first ones to protest the fifth term from their terraces in the form of song.

Leading up to another weekly mass protest in the middle of March, the government decided to schedule the Derby of Algiers, which pits two of the most politically active sets of supporters, USM Alger and MC Alger, against one another.

As a result, the vast majority of supporters decided to boycott the match, preferring to channel their efforts on ousting the government.

This film was funded by our newly launched Creator Commissions initiative.

Each month, there is a grant of up to £1000 accessible to any COPA90 fan and filmmaker to tell a story they feel the football community should know about.
