Death of Pierre Lambert

Pierre Lambert, the leader of the Trotskyist Organisation Communiste Internationaliste (now the Parti des Travailleurs) and a presidential candidate in 1988, died today. Few people were aware of the "Lambertistes" (who garnered 0.38 pct of the vote in 88) until it was revealed that Lionel Jospin had been a clandestine member of the group in the 1960s. Since the hallmark of the Lambertistes was "entrisme," that is, placing members inside "bourgeois" institutions, questions were raised about Jospin.
