Coordination communiste 59-62

The group describes itself as follows: "We are militants acting on different fronts (trade union, anti-imperialist, associative ...) with the conviction that our struggles and our demands cannot be completely satisfied in this filthy system that is capitalism. It must be overthrown by the socialist revolution, which will pave the way for a society free from exploitation: the communist society. To help us in this fight, we rely on Marxist-Leninist theory. Organized since 1991 within the PCF as a revolutionary group opposed to the reformist drift of this Party, we broke with the PCF in 2000 and have since worked for the reconstruction of a revolutionary communist party." (source: Coordination communiste Nord - Pas-de-Calais website).

The flag is a red horizontal background with the logo in yellow outline.

For additional information go to Rassemblement Communiste (official website). Rassemblement Communiste is a coalition of local Communist groups, one of which is the Coordination Communiste 59-62 (Nord - Pas-de-Calais), which accuse the current PCF, as well as other large leftist organizations, for"revisionism" and intend to create a "true" revolutionary Communist party.

The logo is copied from the original located here (source).
