Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ahmed Ben Messali Hadj (1898 in Tlemcen, Algeria - June 3, 1974 in Paris, France) was an Algerian nationalist politician dedicated to the independence of his homeland from France. He co-founded the ' toile Nord-Africaine', the 'Parti du Peuple Alg rien' and the 'Mouvement pour le Triomphe des Libert?'s D mocratiques' before dissociating himself from the armed struggle for Independence in 1954. He also founded the 'Mouvement National Algerien' to counteract the ongoing efforts of the 'Front de Lib ration Nationale'. In 1927 Messali Hadj was elected leader of an Algerian workers' association based in Paris. He attended the Anti-Imperialism Congress in Belgium that year, which created the League against Imperialism, and met with Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh. Back in France and in his native Algeria, then a French colony, Messali helped build an underground movement and work towards Algerian independence.
