The New Popular Front in France

The French Left Unites to Build a Barrage against the Fascist Far Right THE results of France’s recent legislative elections have come as a surprise not just to the French political establishment but also to much of the world.

Most of these reports are anodyne, pointing to a secular rise in migration during the period of neoliberalism. As states in the poorer parts of the world found themselves under assault from the Washington Consensus (cuts, privatisation, austerity), and as employment became more and more precarious, larger and larger numbers of people took to the road to find a way to sustain their families.
