Not one vote for Le Pen!

Build the resistance!

by Nouveau Parti Anticapitaliste

The second round of presidential elections in France is set to take place April 24th, 2022. As in 2017, the two candidates advancing to the final contest are the center-right neoliberal Emmanuel Macron and the neo-fascist Marine Le Pen. The collapse of the historic French center and the Parti Socialiste since the presidency of Francois Hollande (2012-2017) has polarized the political climate, with the far right making dangerous advances. Here, the Nouveau Parti Anticapitaliste issues a short statement on the election and the immediate tasks to resist the threat of fascism. Translated by Andy Sernatinger.
