THE day that the left-wing French newspaper L’Humanite dedicated its front page to the nomination of former Brazilian president Lula for the Nobel Peace Prize, the paper announced that it was going into judiciary supervision as it confronts the pressure of rising costs.
L’Huma ceased to be the organ of the central committee of the Parti Communiste Francais in 1994 and has since accepted a tranche of private capital.
L’Humanite has our solidarity and we hope it finds the strength to carry on and that the jobs of its 175 staff are secured.
The Morning Star has a fraction of L’Huma’s resources, which rather underlines the vital importance of expanding its readership and the print and online subscription base as well as the Fighting Fund.
