Youth Forum success
The first Communist Youth Forum was successfully held last Sunday October 22, with organisers believing it was the first step towards re- establishing a communist youth organisation. Billed as "an opportunity for young socialists to meet, learn, discuss and organise around issues affecting youth", the Forum was attended by high school and university students, and young workers. "A lot of enthusiasm has been generated by the Forum. A number of people were unable to make it due to work or study commitments, but have pledged their support. We will definitely continue meeting", said convenor Andrew Jackson. "As young communists we constantly find ourselves in the position of having to defend the Communist countries and socialism against the lies of our politicians and media. "We invited speakers with experience to give reports on these issues, we can take this knowledge back to our classmates and co-workers and present the truth." "We now have a network of comrades we can call on for support in the struggle."
