Young Reds open branch in north PMB

2009-10-06 00:00

THE Young Communist League (YCL) has launched a branch in the northern areas of Pietermaritzburg.

“We have already signed up several young people and this branch is growing larger by the day. The organisation is a dynamic, radical, non-racial and non-sexist organisation, which will serve all youth to the best of its ability,” says the branch general secretary, Brandon George.

The organisation is determined to deepen and defend democracy and to uplift and sustain young people, say the pair, as it will be involved in all aspects of youth development and in creating a better life for all.

“We have also carried out a survey and have identified the needs of our youth in the surrounding communities, which we will be addressing in the days to come,” says branch chairperson, Viresh Choonilall.
