Energised by the December 1960 protests, the PCA increased its propaganda, aiming at Muslim youth. Against the backdrop of negotiations and terrorism, the PCA published its independence programme in April 1962. It envisioned an Algerian nation that was democratic, pluralist and multicultural, yet predominantly Arabo-Berber, and it called for an opening of public political space to be filled by Algerian voices. The PCA’s socialist ideas presumably influenced the FLN. However, the two organisations presented two opposing notions of socialism: while the FLN promoted a one-party socialist state, the PCA supported class struggle within a pluralist political system.
