Democracy activists and trade unionists were frequently killed. In this situation, the religious affairs ministry considered it necessary to create ‘crusades’ in certain areas, in particular, in the south-west and the north-east. The ministry also considered it necessary to prevent the Algerians from freely mixing with the French and from owning land French colonists had previously possession of.
