The 16th of June of 1976 took place the Soweto uprising. The International Day of African Child remembers these protests in South Africa, the young protesters and students repressed, and to demand a dignified life to African youth and students. The World Federation of Democratic Youth wants to salute its African comrades on this relevant day. The World Federation of Democratic Youth also salutes the struggle of the African youth and students against Imperialism and all of its expressions that exploit and oppress the African youth. Keep forward struggling for the society of peace, international solidarity, social justice, democracy, independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity and youth rights!
