People are standing and looking at the bloody dead man lying on the street during Algerian war. The decolonization of Algeria was one of the bloodiest chapters in African colonial history. In the 1950s, both Morocco and Tunisia, independent states, but France did not want to let go of Algeria, who had vast natural resources, and were closely linked with the French economy. Subjugation led the resistance movement in 1954 merged in the Front de Libération Nationale (FLN), and began to conduct guerrilla war to liberate the country. Two years later, the liberation movement established liberated zones that they could operate from. At this time could liberation movement pattern about 15 000 troops, while French had deposited 200 000. At most France had half a million troops in Algeria, and put all resources to win the war after the painful defeat in Indochina. Since the French put up an electric fence on the border with Tunisia, and put out 900,000 land mines in border areas, had FLN difficult to support the troops. The French also moved between one and two million Algerians from their homes to "concentration centers" to sever the contact between civilians and guerrillas. FLN leadership had abroad have established a provisional government, Gouvernement de la Republique Algerienne (GPRA), and started to build a regular army. [8] France was the military upper hand and drove the guerrillas to retreat. The military success despite growing opposition to the war in France and in Algeria the FLN had greater attendance. Since General Charles de Gaulle became president of France in 1958, he began to seek a way to escape the war. In 1961 did the European minority in Algeria a coup attempt backed by French generals, but this was put down. Negotiations on the ceasefire in Switzerland took over in April 1961. They were difficult and was interrupted several times, but eventually led to a peace agreement which was confirmed by a referendum in France, where 90.7% of the vote was put on de Gaulle's policy. [8 ] The war cost between 300,000 and 1.5 million Algerians life. [10] 8000 villages lay in ruins, large areas were burned and torn, and over two million people had been left homeless.
