Message of WFDY for the 50th Anniversary of OCLAE
Dear Comrades, sisters and brothers of OCLAE,
The World Federation of Democratic Youth is greeting the 50th anniversary of OCLAE. With the opportunity of your 50th anniversary WFDY would like to stress on the issue that the two organizations were always in all over their history together in the struggle for peace and solidarity. We would like to express our fraternal wishes to OCLAE which is completing 50 years of life. In the world we are living today, it is important to know that after 50 years OCLAE is still alive and militant. We wish you to enhance your action and your struggle, especially today, where the students are facing the brutal consequences of the capitalist crisis; we recognise that your role in the international struggle and international solidarity of the students is at least indispensable not only for the Latin American and Caribbean Students, but also for the rest of the students in the world that are deriving power from your actions.
We are taking the opportunity of your 50th anniversary to point out once more that the relationship between WFDY and OCLAE remains strong and our cooperation will continue. We send the message that for 50 years now we have common struggles and we will continue struggling together under the non-stop action of organizations in the service of the Youth, the students and their rights, next to the poor and the oppressed people, always against imperialism, the system that provides distress, exploitation, ignorance and wars. Together we want to continue being the exponents of the aspirations and ideals for a world with real peace, without imperialism and exploitation, where the peoples will live within fraternity and freedom, and they will be the real masters of their lives.
Finally we state that we are looking forward for our cooperation in the mobilization of the youth and students of Latin America and Caribbean for the purposes of the 19th World Festival of Youth and Students that will take place in Russia in October 2017.
Long Live OCLAE, Long Live WFDY, Long Live the international Solidarity
