Sol`i*dar"i*ty (?), n. [F. solidarit'e, fr. solide. See Solid.]

An entire union or consolidation of interests and responsibilities; fellowship; community.

Solidarity [a word which we owe to the French Communists], signifies a fellowship in gain and loss, in honor and dishonor, in victory and defeat, a being, so to speak, all in the same boat. Trench.

The solidarity . . . of Breton and Welsh poetry. M. Arnold.
