Message of Support from the Communist Youth of Catalonia

10 December 2014

Dear comrades,

Warm greetings from the Communist Youth of Catalonia, a recent organization from a merger of the two main communist youth organizations from Catalonia (CJC Catalonia and Young Communists) and many youngsters without organization.

We wish you the best success in this 4th National Congress that takes place a year after the decease of comrade Nelson Mandela. We`re sure this will reinforce your role in the South African working class youth.

Even that we`re from far away and the differences between our countries are huge, you, the Young Communists of South Africa, have been an example for us. You show us how is possible for the communists to cooperate with fraternity with other progressive forces, leaving aside the differences and the sectarianism.

In Catalonia we`re at this moment in an important struggle, in one hand the fight for the right of self-determination, and in the other hand the fight against the Catalan and Spanish oligarchy, and its “austerity” measures.

The local elections that we`re going to face soon are an important step in this struggle in order to build people`s candidatures, and to build people`s power. It`s important to us that these candidatures unite together communists and other leftist forces that are willing to change the system, for the first time in decades we have real chances to win in important places such as in Barcelona.

We`re looking forward to meet with the new direction in the frame of the WFDY or in another occasion, and we wish you the best luck.

Long live to the YCLSA!
Long live to the proletarian internationalism!
Joventut Comunista de Catalunya (Communist Youth of Catalonia)
