The revision of the Constitution, which will be proposed by a committee of experts, "constitutes the first milestone of a new Algeria, which aspires to progress and modernity while strongly imbued with its history and its authenticity," the President of the Republic said in a message read on his behalf by Minister of Mujahideen Tayeb Zitouni, on the occasion of the National Shaheed Day.
The official celebrations took place in Saïda (west of Algiers).
Algeria, said Tebboune, "will never tolerate any attack on the memory of the glorious martyrs of its Revolution."
"The evocation of the heroic and valiant Chouhada (martyrs) reminds us the noble struggle they launched to protect the national identity against all the policies aimed at eroding the people’s religion and making the language and the place French," said the President of the Republic.
It is to live up to the confidence of the martyrs that "we stand today as a bulwark against the external and internal maneuvers aimed at attacking their memory."
"Let us pool our efforts and strengthen our determination to build together new Algeria, so dreamed of by the glorious martyrs," said Tebboune, calling to draw on the tenacity of the Chouhada (martyrs) to build "a strong, prosperous, just and radiant nation".
"Armed with its faith in the noble sacrifices of its glorious martyrs- thanks to whom we are living in freedom-, Algeria is committed to spare no efforts to recover its historical goods and the bones of the Chouhada from the former colonizer," pointed out Tebboune.
In his message, the President also emphasized that “each of our martyrs is a story of a hero which must be told to future generations."
The “young generation should benefit from the lessons of the martyrs to contribute to preserving the country against the destabilizing maneuvers," he stressed
"The best way to pay homage to our glorious martyrs and their pure souls is to live up to their oath for the sovereignty of Algeria and the unity of its people, "he added.
Tebboune called on producers, directors, historians and screenwriters to increase their efforts to "valuate the history of our Revolution, its epics and the heroic combats of all the martyrs, men and women."
