First communiqué of the NPA following the death of Alain Krivine 12 March 2022.

Our comrade Alain Krivine left us today, at the age of 80. We, the comrades of the NPA, join in the grief of his family, his loved ones, and all those who were part of his struggles.

For more than 65 years, Alain was a tireless activist, present in all the struggles against the ravages of the capitalist system, against injustice, for emancipation.

An activist expelled from the PCF, founder and leader of the JCR, the LCR and then the NPA, leader of the Fourth International, Alain never went back on his youthful commitments. He was, for whole generations of activists, a model of constancy, an inexhaustible resource, an exemplary comrade.

We will remember his self-sacrifice, his warmth and his humour. Until the end of his life, Alain did not give up and did not give in to the pressure of "You’ll get over it with age".

In the next few days we will inform you about the tributes that will be organized, and we will write more about Alain’s life and fights.

Bye, old man, and thanks for everything. Let’s keep fighting!
