    I don’t understand the first line because I’m not a native English speaker, and acronyms sometimes confuse me.

    I agree with you, and I am very happy about this victory in France. I was referring to the fact that the working class prioritizes certain issues that the left doesn’t always place at the top of their agenda.

    I think it’s time to show that advocating for minority rights doesn’t mean neglecting measures in favor of workers. I believe this is true, but we need to demonstrate it now; otherwise, when the vote happens again in France, no coalition will be able to stop fascism.

      Sorry, wdym is “what do you mean?”

      In Australia, the centre left has very strong ties with employee unions. They will always advocate for better terms for employees.

      Sadly, much of the “working class” votes on the right because they think of themselves as something better than the working class, despite being poor. There’s a phrase “temporarily embarrassed millionaires”.

      Further left we have the greens, and indeed they prioritise environmental issues over employee terms.
