The Parti Communiste Français (French Communist Party) is a political party in France. Once a popular party, it has become mostly irrelevant, although they still get members elected in the parliament.

Notorious members[edit]

Ambroise Croizat[edit]

Ambroise Croizat is a famous French communist who had a major role in creating social security.[1]

Pierre Laurent[edit]

Pierre Laurent is the current leader of the PCF. He allied the PCF with other left parties to create the Left Front, which made Mélenchon the fourth candidate of the 2012 elections.

Pierre Laurent believes that the centralized version of collective property is outdated but that social appropriation of wealth (he gives, for example, social security) is still a good thing, and his version of communism isn't contradictory to private enterprises.[2] He wrote a book called 99% and uses the classic criticism of the 1% owning too much. He is also a supporter of gay rights and women's rights.
