French Communist PartyThe results of the French legislative elections, if the first-round trend continues for the second round next Sunday, will place the future of the country in extremely difficult circumstances, under the threat of a National Assembly dominated by members from En Marche! and their supporters from the Républicains. This result would plunge millions of our fellow citizens into a democratic “hangover”.

French Communist PartyWe reproduce a statement issued by the French Communist Party about the results of the first round of French Presidential Elections:

The second round of the French presidential election will be a contest between the racist and xenophobic candidate of the far right, Marine Le Pen, and Emmanuel Macron, the candidate selected by the financial world to reinforce the liberal policies afflicting our country for the past 40 years.

This situation is extremely grave for our country. The far-right reached the second round and the left has been eliminated. However, for the first time in decades, millions of citizens, striving for social change, nearly succeeded in carrying their candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon to the second round. Voters who were betrayed by the policies of Hollande and Valls and who worked hard to bring Jean-Luc Mélenchon to the second round are today experiencing mixed and sometimes contradictory feelings.

French Communist PartyMillions among you are ready to the turn the page on a political system that has been reduced to impotence and eroded by the powers of finance. Millions among you are angry at policies that are hard on the weakest and easy on the most powerful; angry at discrimination of all kinds; angry at a financial system that destroys everything in our country, from employment to the most precious human relationships.

Communists who left the URCF (Union des révolutionnaires-communistes de France, Union of Revolutionary Communists of France) after the foundation of the PRC (Parti Révolutionnaire-Communistes, Revolutionary Party-Communistes) by the unification of the URCF and the Communistes in 2015, founded the PCRF (Parti Communiste Révolutionnaire de France, Revolutionary Communist Party of France). ICP correspondent spoke with Maurice Cukierman, the secretary-general on the newly founded PCRF.

World Federation of Trade UnionsThe World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) expresses its indignation against the forced evacuation of oil storage facilities and its full solidarity with all workers in France, who are fighting against the law “travail” of the Social-Democratic government of François Hollande. The WFTU expresses its full and fraternal support to its affiliate, the FNIC-CGT, which strengthens the struggle of workers until the withdrawal of this unacceptable draft law.

pcfThe French Communist Party (PCF) stated that they considered the big wave of manifestations of 1.2 million people which prevailed all over France on 31st of March as a grand success.

PCF also stated that the street demonstrations only revealed a small part of the unrest in the country, where more than 70 percent of the people want the reforms to be withdrawn. It was reported that the communist senators also spoke their protests against the new labour law in the parliament despite the offenses of PM Manuel Valls besides the right wing and the socialist members.The communists put their position clearly on the issue: The labour law no thanks! (Loi Travail non merci !)

attacIn the aftermath of the massacres of Paris, members and supporters of Attac, in unison with the French society, feel horror and revulsion at the indiscriminate and murderous hatred.

Attac expresses its solidarity with the victims and their relatives. The people murdered Friday night were merely exercising their right to convivality, to civility, to art, to a free life, all things that these killers want to eradicate in the name of a fanatical vision of religion.

Despite the emotion and sadness, we refuse to give in to terror, we reject the society of fear, stigmatization and scapegoating. We affirm our determination to continue to circulate, to work, to entertain us, to hold meetings and fight freely.

International Federation of ResistanceThe International Federation of Resistance - Union of Antifascists (FIR) deeclares on the terrorist attacks in Paris:

Deeply shocked we had to take note of the terrorist attacks of this weekend in Paris. According to previous information, several hundred people were killed in a series of attacks or seriously injured. At a total of five points in Paris, among others in the Concert Hall at the Bataclan and the Stade de France, there were shootings, murders and bombings. After this wave of terror the French president declared the state of emergency across the country.

The scandal was uncovered by German Christian Democrat MEP, Manfred Weber. Yesterday, during the vote by MEPs convened for a plenary parliamentary session in Strasbourg, he observed that Marine Le Pen voted even though she was absent. He made a complaint.

The verdict was given this morning. Yes, Marine Le Pen really did vote without being there. It was the member who sits next to her, with whom she had left her voting card, who voted for her on four occasions, in flagrant contravention of parliamentary rules which stipulate, in Rules 166 and 167, that MEPs votes must be made in person and that no one may vote for another in their absence.
