French sympathisers

In this list, http://www.broadleft.org/fr.htm

it describes 'Socialist Democracy' as 'close to British SPGB'

Can anyone shed any more light on them?

This will be a reference to a French-language site run by someone who agreed with us 100%, i.e. more than a sympathiser, between 2001 and 2008 or 2009. The link is: www.democratie-socialiste.org but you'll have to use the Way Back Machine to see it. We've got a paper version anyway and some of the material is in the French-language section of the World Socialist Movement site. It was a one-man show and stopped when he felt he could no longer carry on. I might contact him to see if he can be revived.

There are a number of other sympathisers in France not connected with this, in particular the person who runs this site and page:

Thanks. Some of the archived versions are spam so I would advise looking only at 2001-2002 such as this one;

After 2002, the site seems to have moved to the the same address but with a .net suffix instead of .org

https://web.archive.org/web/20021030180808/http://www.democratie-socialiste.net/

Until 2007 when spammers took over the abandoned page.

I e-mailed bataille socialiste but their blog seems to have called it a day a couple of months ago

Thanks. We should store these links somewhere so they don't have to be tracked down again. I think the same person had a Spanish version of the site too but I wouldn't know how to start finding it.

Bataille socialiste has not disappeared into the archives like the other one. It still exists. It's just that nothing more is being added to it. The sympathiser who used to run it is still around, occasionally "liking" something on our facebook page.
