The NPA is the target of an investigation for advocating terrorism

From the Insoumis to Place publique, including the Socialist Party, the Ecologists and the French Communist Party, the left-wing movements agreed on a single candidacy in the 577 constituencies.

The NPA’s rallying to the New Popular Front had been strongly criticized by the right and the far right, particularly given the positions of this movement on the October 7 massacres in Israel.

The NPA is in fact the target of an investigation for advocating terrorism, after a press release in which it recalled its “support for the Palestinians and the means of struggle they have chosen to resist”.

“The Israeli strategy, called the “lawn mower”, actually consists of physically and regularly eliminating new generations of activists and opponents of the occupation, in an endless cycle of repetition”wrote the NPA, adding: “this time, the offensive is on the side of the resistance”.
