We have learned with immense sadness of the death of our comrade Denise Comanne, last Friday May 28, following a mild heart attack, just after she had participated in a solidarity activity with the people of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Denise was a militant in the full sense of the term, an indefatigable revolutionary, who devoted an amazing energy to international solidarity. It is a tragic loss. We share the pain of her friends and comrades from Liège, of the CADTM, of which she was a pillar, and address our deepest sympathy to her companion, Eric Toussaint. Denise had agreed with enthusiasm to be a candidate on the list in Liège for the Fronts de gauche for the general election on June 13th. We will reproduce soon in English the text she wrote to present her political itinerary and commitment, along with a tribute from Eric on the oocasion of her 60th birthday. A vibrant internationalist voice is extinct, but her combat continues and will continue.
