The Struggle Front for the National Independence of Guinea (Portuguese: Frente de Luta pela Independência Nacional da Guiné; abbreviated to FLING) is a political movement in Guinea-Bissau. FLING was founded in 1962 in Dakar by sections that opposed the Marxist doctrine of Amílcar Cabral and the PAIGC. FLING participated in the national liberation struggle against the Portuguese colonial rule. In the international arena, FLING maintained relations to social democratic groups.
The national trade union federation União Geral dos Trabalhadores de Guiné Bissau was linked to FLING in the pre-independence period.
FLING based its support amongst the Manjaco people.
After 1991 FLING could participate openly in national politics as an opposition party. It merged into the Plataforma Unida coalition.
