The YCL is a Marxist-Leninist youth organization fighting to build socialism in Canada. We struggle for things like free education, better rights and conditions for young workers and international peace and solidarity, all while connecting these issues with the longer term struggle for socialism. The YCL is Canada’s oldest revolutionary youth organization. Formed in 1923, we struggled against the Great Depression, sent brigades to fight fascism during the Spanish civil war, resisted the cold war, and rallied for peace and nuclear disarmament. The YCL is politically united with the Communist Party of Canada, but is organizationally autonomous with our own constitution, conventions, & membership.
The YCL club meets at least once a month to discuss tasks, plan our activities and follow up on our progress. We organize and participate in protests, marches and movements in support of local and international progressive causes, do work to raise awareness of issues brought on by capitalism and the need for a socialist system as well as combating anti-communist propaganda, and hold educational gatherings to improve our understanding of Marxist-Leninist theory and history.
This club is currently the only one in the province of Manitoba.
