It my history coursework very good, lot of information and historians viewpointsCHANGING ATTITUDES OF FERHAT ABBASIntroductionFerhat Abbas believed in the peaceful solution and that the French are willing to co-operate with the Algerians. With this co-operation, he thought, it was possible for all to live together. He was brought up and thought to believe in democracy and parliament, to look for these in a peaceful fashion and that the people have to be asked what to do with their country and not to be terrorised to be convinced differently. However in the 1950's we can see a clear change, a turn in his thoughts. He accepts more violent ways in order to gain what he believes in.In order to ...view middle of the document...

' Also in this manifesto Abbas continuously condemns the French oppressive colonialism and even asks for the self- determination of the whole population as a different culture. Soon afterward he wrote an addition to the manifesto in which he sees the Algeria as the country separate from France. In the book 'A Savage War of Peace' his attitude is described as following:'Of pacific temperament, although he was a skilful debater, he was no rabble-rouser...'(Horne,1979, p.40).The A.M.LOn its rejection by the French governor general, Ferhat Abbas and an Algerian working-class leader, Messali Hadj, formed the Amis du Manifeste et de la Liberté (A.M.L. ; Friends of the Manifesto and Liberty), which envisioned an Algerian autonomous republic federated to a renewed, anti-colonial France. This party saw that the Algeria should be decolonised and that the French should leave the ruling to the Algerian people.

It did gain lot of support but also attracted the attention of the French. Soon the French dealt with the A.M.L. The ideas were to rebellious for the authorities to overlook. Abbas was imprisoned for a year. In the prison he meets other politicians with the similar ideas like himself. Also when Abbas was thrown to prison his party, the A.M.L., was abolished.The U.D.M.AIn 1946, after a year of imprisonment Ferhat Abbas founded the Union Démocratique du Manifeste Algérien (U.D.M.A. ; Democratic Union of the Algerian Manifesto), which advocated co-operation with France in the formation of the Algerian state.

Be generous...!'(Horne, 1979, p.73).Again the propositions were rejected. Ferhat Abbas tried further to perceive his views in his peaceful and democratic fashion only to be ignored again. The best proof of his belief into the French is his speech to the Assembly, and the French, in 1954:Ferhat joins F.L.N.Abbas' moderate and conciliatory attempts failed to evoke a sympathetic response from the French colonial officials, and in 1956 he escaped to Cairo to join the Front de Libération Nationale (F.L.N.), an Algerian organisation committed to revolutionary struggle for independence from France founded in 1954.In 1956 we can see the change in Abbas's attitude. In that year he joins the F.L.N. which was committed towards the similar views as him but believed in different techniques in gaining them.
