Greetings from the executive committee of YCL Hamilton!
We are an organization of revolutionary, democratic, socialist youth guided by Marxist-Leninist ideology in Hamilton, Ontario. Our goal is the overthrow of all oppressive forces in Canada and the creation of a new society based on equality, peace, social justice and the dignity of all human beings.
To this end, we strive always to build mass organizations and mobilize all youth to fight for the abolition of tuition fees, more funding for post-secondary education, employment prospects for all youth in Canada, and the democratic participation of all youth in Canada in the country’s social, political, and economic life.
We fight for the full emancipation of youth, students, women, the LGBTQ community, First Nations and indigenous communities, Francophones and the Quebecois nation, immigrants, religious minorities, visible minorities, migrant workers – in short, all oppressed people, from the yoke of capital and imperialism.
We strive to build solidarity between all those who share our goal of a peaceful, prosperous and democratic Canada founded on socialist principles and working always toward the goal of a stateless, classless society – a communist society!
We strive always to uphold the principle of internationalism and vigourously oppose all forms of discrimination, xenophobia, racism and imperialism. We believe in the right of all peoples to self-determination.
In the name of all the democratic and revolutionary youth of Hamilton, Canada, and all of the world, we invite you to join us in our unrelenting battle against capitalism and the forces of reaction. Get in touch with YCL Hamilton today and rise up!
YCL – give ’em hell!
