18th Word Festival of Youth and Students
The international response of Youth against imperialism
In a period where the dominance of the imperialist system is presented to be “inevitable” and also “realistic”, the 18th World Festival of Youth and Students that will take place in Quito, Ecuador, from 7 to 13 of December 2013, will be the a strong, international response of the massive youth anti-imperialist movement against imperialism. The Festival, in which the World Federation of Democratic Youth (WFDY) plays the most significant role, will be a source of militancy, struggle and internationalism. It comes at a moment where the anti-imperialist struggle is a vital need. The World Festival will become once again a militant gathering of tens of thousands young men and women from all around the world: representatives of millions of youth, members of youth organizations, student unions, trade unions, peace movements, women organizations and other massive movements. The common basis of this effort is the need for international coordination against imperialism.
