On the 3rd to 5th of July, the first meeting of the Youths of the European Left was held at Berlin. We found ourselves among comrad@s from all over Europe, in an effort to address matters concerning young people on the continent. In the center of our concerns were matters of democracy, education, ecology, human rights and labor.
At the same time, we proceeded in creating European campaign to support immigrants and refugees against the far-right rhetoric and agenda that many EU governments are adopting. The Youth of SYRIZA sees this 1st meeting as an opportunity for a new beginning for all the left-wing youth organizations across Europe. Our devotion to unity, the struggle against austerity and building a new Europe on a completely different basis, is fundamental, and an alternative we intend to fight for.
