Not exactly an organization, but these guys are friends of mine in
Norway:

http://www.copyleft.no/

It's basically a small company doing programming and installation of
free software, and most of them are hard leftists. They host and give
services to, amongst others, leftist parties and groups in Norway (RV,
the Red Election Alliance, being the main party, and groups like ATTAC
Norway and Indymedia Norway being the most notable other groups).

They're mostly interesting because they're a company with a clear
leftist/free software profile, and they manage to do quite good
business. Not exactly what you were looking for, I realize, but just
thought I'd offer it up.
