Victor Griffuelhes (14 March 1874, Nérac – 30 June 1922, Saclas) was a French socialist and leader of the General Confederation of Labour (CGT) in France.[1] He was drawn to anarcho-syndicalism and advocated the establishment of socialism through independent trade union action.[1]

Dreyfus affair

According to Zeev Sternhell, Griffuelhes, like Emile Pouget, has been indifferent to the Dreyfus Affair, seeing it as a bourgeois mystification to distract the people from true issues.[2]
