The YCL Executive Committee is proud to announce the launch of the official website for the British Delegation to the World Festival of Youth and Students, happening in Sochi, Russia in October.
More and more, the YCL is expanding its activity in Britain as well as international solidarity.
We are not only an organisation of Marxist-Leninist youth in Britain, we are also affiliates to the historic anti-imperialist, international youth alliance that emerged in what many hoped would be a new world of peace and social progress after WWII, the World Federation of Democratic Youth (WFDY). WFDY is also the young people’s equivalent of the World Federation of Trade Unions and other organisations.
As such, we were invited by WFDY to prepare for the approaching World Festival of Youth and Students (WFYS), organised by WFDY and its affiliates. This Festival happens every four years in distinct countries around the world.
With our fellow affiliate the Young Socialists, we established the National Preparatory Committee (NPC), which will be the organising committee for our Delegation to the Festival.
Now the committee is charged with publicising the Festival and recruiting young people and organisations to participate in the Delegation and its work.
Above all, this is a great opportunity for the League to engage with progressive youth and friends and allies from the labour movement, build mutual links, and have fun in a setting of much needed international solidarity – the World Festival – at a time when the world needs it so desperately.
