One prominent group, the Union française nord africaine or UFNA, collected 10,000 adherents under the leadership of Boyer Banse. In Oran, the Volonté algérienne, touting a similar type of vigilante populism pulled in some 3,000 members. The Amicale française de l’Algérie in Bône was weaker but still had 1,000 members. The Comité d’entente des anciens combattants d’Algérie et du Sahara was also formed in Algeria in 1955, attracting pied-noir veterans and reserves from the two World Wars. Student groups joined faculty members to form the Mouvement universitaire pour le maintien de la souveraineté française en Algérie (MUPMSFA).
