The delegation from the Young Communist League Britain has arrived at the 19th World Festival of Youth and Students after a long journey from Heathrow to Moscow, then to Sochi, Russia.
The point of this trip is simple: to join and share the debates with our international sister organisations, the Young Communist Leagues and anti-imperialist progressive youth groups who together with us constitute the World Federation of Democratic Youth, and help to make this year’s festival a success.For one week, we will be participating in festival activities and workshops where young people and students of the world will rally together for peace, progress and social justice, share their experiences and cultures and make lasting friendships.
Members of the Executive Committee of the YCL will be reunited with comrades whom we have met at international events, and with whom we share links but might have never met in person, and take the opportunity to share the experiences of our countries and establish closer friendships.
Finally, it will be an incredible and developmental experience for many of us, going abroad together as a team, working together at workshops and sporting events, and living together as an official delegation from our country’s youth for a week.
We will continue to build upon actions like these and hope that many more young people will place their trust in the Young Communist League as a voice for British youth in the future.
