(FILES) A file photo taken on April 19, 2019 shows Algerians, waving national flags and carry anti corruption placards, marching during an anti government demonstration in the capital Algiers. Algeria is readying for a constitutional referendum that the establishment says will usher in a "New Republic" and boost freedoms, but the opposition dismisses it as window-dressing by a repressive regime. With a month to go before the November 1 referendum, many ordinary Algerians -- struggling in a deep economic crisis with soaring unemployment -- appear unaware of the technical details of what the government proposes.
