International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination 21.03.2019 The 21st of March is marked by the United Nations as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. As the General Assembly of the United Nations, correctly underlines “any doctrine of racial superiority is scientifically false, morally condemnable, socially unjust and dangerous and must be rejected, together with theories that attempt to determine the existence of separate human races.” For WFDY, the phenomenon of racial discrimination is nothing more than another extension of the many effects of imperialism in today’s societies. Nowadays, as it is also recognized by a document of the UN, this phenomenon is expressed with “various racist extremist movements based on ideologies that seek to promote populist, nationalist, right-wing agendas and racial superiority, fuelling racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance” One of the most dangerous and unhuman extents of this phenomenon is the revival of Nazism through the many fascist and neonazist organisations around the world. WFDY, as a true child of the victory of the peoples against fascism, shall rise, bring together all the progressive youth of the world and fight against this monstrosity with unity, solidarity and internationalism. We state ready and militant! Defenders of peace and friendship!
WFDY about the coup attempt in Venezuela 30.04.2019 The puppet of the US, Juan Guaido, stated today that the “final phase” of the overthrow of the legitimate president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, has begun. Calling for the support of the military forces and the people of the country, Guaido is attempting a coup against the elected government of Venezuela. This action brings new escalation to the violence in Venezuela and great dangers for the people of the country. WFDY salutes the immediate response of the ministry of defence with the rejection of the attempted coup. We reaffirm our support to the legitimate government of Venezuela and its rightful president, Nicolas Maduro Moros. We express our total solidarity to the people of the country. We condemn any foreign interference in Venezuela. The anti-imperialist youth of the world stands by the side of our member organisations of the country in this difficult moment. We ask from all of our member organisations, to state clear that those attacks are not accepted and will not be tolerated! We ask from all the peace-loving people of the planet to shout out loud: Imperialism, Hands off Venezuela!
