"There must be movements which are ready to take a role as the power of change"


Logo of Communist Youth of Finland.

Communist Youth of Finland greets the 2nd General Assembly of the Communist Youth of Denmark on 8-10 July 2022 and congratulates our Danish comrades for the development in political and organizational work and wishes future success in overcoming challenges and right-wing hegemony. The global situation demands progressive cooperation. As a response to imperialism, militarism and warlike emanation, the world needs peace initiatives, nuclear disarmament, action for people's well-being and environment, dialogue and diplomacy. Inflation and higher prices drive increasing amounts of people into poverty in our countries and in many other areas. Politicians – both in Denmark and Finland - have the keys to control prices, end poverty and homelessness and support the workers' fight for better wages by political decisions, but the elite is more interested in stoking militarism and deepening the gap between the working and capitalist classes. There must be movements that keep the elite accountable and which are ready to take a role as the power of change. More people in the Nordics have lost their trust in the system and become frustrated for not having their voices heard, not having real power and possibilities to participate in or affect decision-making. The question is how we can stop apathy and turn it into communist political activism and how we can manage to tell people that a socialist system is the best and only alternative that can provide better living conditions, that has the capability to fulfill the basic needs of the working class by removing the contradiction of work and capital and building an economy that works for the people, not the elite.


As an act of promoting the cooperation of civil society and movements, we want to inform and invite you to plan and participate in the international hybrid event 'No Survival Without Peace' in Tampere, Finland and on Zoom on 19th & 20th November.

International communist cooperation is necessary for seeking the answers to that, it is necessary for the sharing of experiences in building progressive alliances and growing people's class-consciousness as well as ultimately clearing the road to revolution and socialism. As an act of promoting the cooperation of civil society and movements, we want to inform and invite you to plan and participate in the international hybrid event 'No Survival Without Peace' in Tampere, Finland and on Zoom on 19th & 20th November. The initiative is to bring together organizations and activists working for peace and the environment internationally, and in Finland. Welcome along! More info on: www.ymparistovaatiirauhaa.fi/en. Comradely, Communist Youth of Finland
