'Revolution of smiles': Paris diaspora actively supporting Algerian protest movement

As a mass, peaceful protest movement continues in Algeria, Franco-Algerians have been gathering at the Place de la République every Sunday in Paris to demonstrate against the ailing Algerian president and those who keep him in power. Algeria's "Revolution of smiles", as its members are calling it, aims for a total overhaul of the system that's been in place for the past two decades. Our reporters met with Paris-based activists from different walks of life.
