Gauche Révolutionnaire

Gauche Révolutionnaire (CWI)

Gauche Révolutionnaire (Revolutionary Left) is the French section of the Committee for a Workers' International (CWI). The organisation is based around northern French towns such as Rouen.


Gauche Révolutionnaire originated from within the Ligue Communiste Révolutionnaire, being expelled after winning the majority of that organisation's youth section, Jeunesse Communiste Révolutionnaire to its ideas. At expulsion in 1992, it had roughly 50-60 members.

After one member spotted a poster for the October 1992 Youth Against Racism in Europe (YRE) demonstration in Brussels, members joined that demonstration where they met representatives of the Committee for a Workers' International. They eventually joined the CWI after discussions.

EU Constitution

Gauche Révolutionnaire advocated a no vote in the French EU Constitution referendum in 2005.


In the 2004 district elections, Leïla Messaoudi standing for Gauche Révolutionnaire in the district of Rouen 5 won 184 votes (4.1%).
