For Memory, Truth and Justice



30,000 to 40,000 people have "disappeared" in Algeria since 1993. They are all ages and come from all social backgrounds. Most have "disappeared" after being arrested by security forces, who often act without arrest orders of any kind. Their families continue looking for them and demanding answers from the Algerian government, which has acknoweldged the disappearances but criminalized any expression of concern related to human rights violations in Algeria.
