On this week's episode of The New Arab Voice, we examine the Algerian Hirak, three years on from the first protests. Where did it succeed? Where did it fail? And what does the future hold for the pro-democracy movement?

Featuring interviews with Andrew Farrand (@AndrewFarrand), author of The Algerian Dream , Zine Ghebouli (@GheZinou) from the University of Glasgow, and Salsabil Chellali (@SaChellali), researcher at Human Rights Watch. 

And then, we're joined by Benjamin Ashraf to discuss the film Bringing Assad to Justice, which recently had its London premier. Also featuring comment from the film's director Ronan Tynan (@RonanLTynan)
