Transcript For the Establishment of a Militant Front with the Adult Working Class the Young Communist International has formulated the following demands: Young workers to have full rights on all shop councils. Young workers to be accepted on equal terms in the trade unions but to pay lower dues. According to the peculiar conditions that may exist in different countries the Young Communist Leagues may enlarge or adapt thqse demands as the occasion requires. The fate of the working class youth is inseparably connected with that of the whole working class. The economic struggle of the young workers can be successful only when it is carried on with the full support of, and in conjunction with, the adult working class. The adults must support the struggling young workers, since the interests of the working class youth are the interests of the proletariat as a whole, and since the economic problems of the working class are inseparable from those of the young workers. The Young Communist Leagues conduct their economic struggle through the organizations of the whole proletariat and, primarily, through the trade unions. The trade unions are the mass organizations of the workers for the protection of their economic interests. The Young Communist Leagues advocate on principle the equality of young and adult workers in the trade unions and strive to induce the trade unions to defend the interests of the young workers. Each member of the Young Communist League must also be a member of his trade union. The Young Communist Leagues are, however, thoroughly conscious of the fact that only the revolutionary trade unions desire to, and can, represent the interests of the workers, young and old. They therefore oppose the reformist trade union bureaucracy, strive to revolutionize the trade unions, and support the Red International of Labour Unions. THE ANTI-MILITARIST STRUGGLE OF THE YOUNG COMMUNIST LEAGUES Militarism is an invariable and inevitable component of capitalism and is one of the most powerful instruments of its rule. The struggle against militarism is therefore the struggle against one of the mightiest tools of bourgeois class rule. 37
