- Breton National Party
The PNB formed in the aftermath of split between
federalists and nationalists within the Breton Autonomist Party(PAB), following the Congress of Guingampin August 1931. Following the collapse of the PAB, the federalists led by Morvan Marchalformed the " Breton Federalist League", the nationalist faction, led by Olier Mordrel, decided to found a new party with a clearly nationalist agenda, namely seeking Breton independence from France.
This revived the programme of the previous
Breton Nationalist Party, which had existed from 1911-1914. A congress was held in Landerneauon December 27, 1931. The following year, activists led by Célestin Lainébombed a sculpture in Rennesrepresenting Breton unity with France. The creation of this sculpture had spurred the foundation of the earlier party in 1911.
The party was influenced by international Celticist ideas, and modelled its aspirations on Irish independence movements. It was also closely associated with
fascistideology. Because of its connections with Nazi Germanythe party was banned in France on the outbreak of World War IIin 1939, but after the defeat of France it was revived, becoming closely associated with Breton collaborationism. An explicitly Nazi faction broke away in 1941 under the name Breton Social-National Workers' Movement.
During its existence, the PNB published a newspaper, "
