Left-wing extremist following

At the end of 2015 the left-wing extremist following totalled 26,700 (2014: 27,200) after subtracting multiple memberships. As in previous years, there was a slight decline in membership of Marxist-Leninist and other legalist left-wing extremist groups, which fell to 20,300 individuals in 2015 (2014: 21,100).

The number of violence-oriented left-wing extremists rose slightly, by contrast, and totalled 7,700 at the end of 2015 (2014: 7,600), of whom 6,300 were autonomists (2014: 6,100).
