Ami du Peuple

 

(Friend of the People), one of the most popular democratic newspapers of the Great French Revolution, published by J.-P. Marat.

The newspaper began publication on Sept. 12, 1789. In September 1792 its name was changed to Journal de la République française and somewhat later to Publiciste de la République française. The paper was so popular in revolutionary democratic circles and its content was so closely identified with the political views of its publisher that Marat himself began to be called I’ami du peuple. The last issue came out on July 14, 1793, the day after Marat was murdered. The name Ami du peuple was also used by other left-wing French publicists of that time for their publications.
