The struggle was touched off by the Front de Libération Nationale (or FLN), an organization of Algerian nationalists in Algeria and in exile. The FLN started its struggle in 1954, only two years before France was forced to give up its control over Tunisia and Morocco.
The FLN’s main Algerian rival — with the same goal of Algerian independence — was the later National Algerian Movement (Mouvement National Algérien, MNA) whose main supporters were Algerian workers in France. The FLN and MNA fought against each other in France, and sometimes in Algeria, for nearly the full duration of the conflict.
Intrastate conflict in France
When finally France opened peace-negotiations in 1961, the OAS (Organisation de l'Armée Secrète; Secret Army Organization) formed by members of the French Army violently attempted to disrupt the peace process. Despite this intrastate conflict in France, Algeria was granted independence in 1962.
