France - Election 2012 - Left Front's Presidential Candidate Jean Luc Melenchon Rally in Toulouse
Up to 40,000 people were expected at a rally in Toulouse held by Radical l Left Front's presidential candidate Jean Luc Melenchon. The Left Front (Front de Gauche) is an alliance of the Communist Party and Left Party, which in turn is formed of former Socialists, people who hadn't been members of a political party before and dissidents from the Green Party. They first stood in the 2009 European elections. Their program calls for control over the banks, a completely new relationship based on "solidarity" between France and other European countries, "ecological planning" and dismantling NATO. Fears that Mélenchon, a former teacher and government minister, may cut into the Socialist vote appear unfounded
