The Internationale (French: "L'Internationale") is a left-wing anthem written by anarchist Eugène Pottier. It has been a standard of the socialist movement since the late nineteenth century, when the Second International adopted it as its official anthem. The title arises from the "First International", an alliance of workers which held a congress in 1864.
- Arise, ye workers from your slumber,
Arise, ye prisoners of want.
- Arise, you prisoners of starvation!
Arise, you wretched of the earth!
- Stand up, all victims of oppression,
For the tyrants fear your might!
