The meaningful narrative of the Comité Régional d'Action Viticole's (CRAV) history ends in 1992 with the condemnation of CRAV activists as 'terrorists' by Colonel Weber. Yet it is also possible to connect the CRAV and the Défense movement into the larger anti-globalisation movement in France and demonstrate the bonds between the core of the CRAV in 1992 and the broader 'new peasant left'. The endurance of the term peasant owed much to the organisations which had continued to fight for representation throughout the 1980s and 1990s. This was happened during European integration and the influence of the Common Agricultural Policy had fundamentally challenged the role of agriculture within modern French society. The anti-globalisation movement has translated the legacy of the 1970s Défense movement into a new force which was neither bound to the Languedoc nor reliant on the economic importance of winegrowing.
