20th anniversary of release of Mandela and Cmd's

The World Federation of Democratic Youth joins the Mandela family, South African people and all progressive youth movements in remembering the 20th Anniversary after the release of Cde Nelson Mandela from the notorious Robben Island Prison of the apartheid regime.

We once again re-affirm our support for the great revolutionary leader who has stood firm and focused to defend the imperialist machinations and unconditionally defended the revolution for a free South Africa.

Today, the same imperialist regimes continue to craft draconian laws to further oppress innocent people of the world under the so called banners of the rule of law, democracy and terrorist activities amongst other endless list of imperial propaganda language.

WFDY still stand side by side with revolutionaries who resisted and who still resist all forms of oppression, leaders like Cde Mandela who made South Africa to illuminate with glory over the achievements they made in developing their countries.

On behalf of member and friendly organizations, the World Federation of Democratic Youth therefore salute Cde Nelson Mandela for the role he has played as a courageous father-figure, a role model par excellence and we applaud him for the historical role he has played in uniting the progressive masses of not South Africa but the world at large. His highest level of his sacrifice goes a long way in teaching us, the youth of today, to actively participate in resisting all forms of oppression for a better and peaceful world.
