SA youth must learn from Egypt

Johannesburg - South Africa's youth should draw lessons from the active involvement of Egyptian youth in the political affairs of their country, the Young Communist League (YCL) said on Sunday.

"The lessons drawn from Egypt are symbolic of what happens when the socio-economic conditions of our people deteriorate, levels of corruption are rampant, inequalities deepen and the gap between the rich and poor widens," the YCL said in a statement.

"We also hope that those who are in power and the capitalist elite have learned lessons that as long as the conditions of our people do not improve, and that they continue to live a lavish lifestyle parallel to poverty, unemployment and HIV/Aids, the poor would take their share of the cake."

The YCL hoped the youth of Egypt would not tire in ensuring that the country's military regime "speedily initiates" free and fair elections.
