of the Poujadismus designates a right-extremist political current in the France of the 50's. Name giver was Pierre Poujade, the 1955 the union de défense commerçants et artisans (UDCA, dt. Union for the defense of the dealers and craftsmen) as a protest party based.
The UDCA represented among other things the interests of the Algeria Frenchmen at times of the Algeria war, used themselves for the preservation of the prosperity of the Kleinbauern, retailers and craftsmen, who had suffered during the French Wirtschaftswunders under the concentration movements in the economy, and placed themselves against the established parties. Also anti-Semitic tones were occasionally fastened.
Thus the UDCA obtained 1956 up to 11 per cent of the voices with the elections, sank however in the following years back into the Bedeutungslosigkeit.
