Revolutionary perspectives in times of crisis

As in previous years, for the youth organization REVOLUTION the first week of August was filled up by REVOCAMP, an internationalist summer camp for young revolutionaries in Liberec (Czech Republic). This year’s camp was organized jointly by the independent youth organization REVOLUTION and the Revolutionary Socialist Organization (RSO). About 50 participants from the Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Great Britain and the USA made this camp slightly bigger than last year’s; also, more comrades from groups such as Socialist Workers’ Voice (SAS), Permanent Revolution, and the Left Party youth organization “Linksjugend [‘solid]” were present and a lively political exchange was possible. »»»»

“YES WE CAN.” Barack Obama used this slogan to become President of the United States. He used it to promise serious change in the U.S. and around the world: an end to the Iraq War, action against climate change and help for people losing their homes or jobs in the economic crisis.

International summer camp for revolutionary youth • July 28 – August 1 • Liberec / Czech Republic

In many places we fight against things that we can’t stand: at school against the pressure to succeed and the arbitrary rule of teachers, at work against bad conditions and low wages, on the streets against nazis. We campaign against militarism and against the destruction of the environment. We fight in small groups or we join up for big protests like last year in Heiligendamm against the G8. »»»»

Tons of people will take part in the protests against the G8. But what comes next? Poverty, unemployment, climate change, cuts in education – all the products of capitalism – will still exist. For this reason we must organize beyond the G8 summit to fight this entire system. »»»»
