Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The French Greens were a full part of the "plural coalition" of the left (also including the Communist Party) that was in government in 97-02 and was a real government of the left, with centrists like Stauss-Kahn balanced out by more lefty types like Martine Aubry and the plural partners.

Today, they position themselves clearly to the left, even if part of their appeal is Cohn-Bendit's personality, and his liberal-libertarian leanings.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
