Pierre Monatte

Pierre Monatte (1881-1960)

Pierre Monatte was a central figure of the French anarcho-syndicalist movement, as an activist & as a publisher.

Influenced by Emile Pouget, & friends with Albert Camus, Monatte fought the Stalinist influence & reformist positions of the trade unions.

Monatte himself had joined the Communist Party for a few years following the Russian Revolution, but was eventually kicked out for challenging its authoritarianism.

In 1925, with the help of Robert Louzon, he founded Révolution prolétarienne, an anarchist-syndicalist publication which many anarchists wrote for. The review stopped publishing in 1939, resuming again in 1947.
