Things not going at all well in Algeria. Oh dear.

Things not going quite as planned in Algeria it would seem.............................

Environmental movement blocks fracking in Algeria’s remote south
An unprecedented environmental protest movement in a remote part of Algeria has disrupted the country’s multibillion-dollar shale programme and is making political waves across the north African nation and the wider region.
Since the start of January, thousands of protesters have turned up daily in the rural town of Ain Salah, in the heart of the Sahara, to take part in increasingly raucous rallies against a $70bn hydraulic fracturing project they say will pollute the groundwater and disturb the environment.
