The World Federation of Democratic Youth stands in strong solidarity with all those who struggle every day in the United States namely the growing Occupy Wall Street and the Occupy Movement.
We are thrilled to see that thousands of young people have taken to the streets in hundreds of U.S. cities. We send our sincere comradeship and support as you face police repression and the dropping nighttime temperatures of the fall season.
United States capitalism and its supporters are a substantial part of the origin of current international crisis of the capitalist system. As U.S. corporations force the world’s economies into privatization, WFDY members around the world are experiencing a deterioration of socialized medicine, education, housing, and other human rights. The U.S.-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and other U.S. military occupations around the world, also threaten young peoples’ futures. We understand that one of the principal reasons why these wars have occurred is so that the companies which produce warfare materials can reap profit.
