”Front de Libération Nationale, bulletin number 24.
Brothers of the Casbah!
The colonial administration is responsible not only for our people’s great misery, but also for the degrading vices of many of our brothers who have forgotten their own dignity.
Corruption and brutality have always been the most dangerous weapons of colonialism. The Front de Libération Nationale calls all the people to struggle for their own physical and moral redemption — indispensable conditions for the reconquest of independence. Therefore beginning today, the clandestine authority of the FLN prohibits the following activities: gambling, the sale and usage of all types of drugs, the sale and usage of alcoholic beverages, prostitution and its solicitation. Transgressors will be punished. Habitual transgressors will be punished by death.”
