Transcript The first International Union of Socialist Youth Organisations was formed in 1907, at the Stuttgart Congress. In spite of the attempts of the reformists and social patriots to break up this union, the overwhelming majority of its affiliated organizations proclaimed at the end of the war — the beginning of the revolutionary period — their adherence to the principles of the revolutionary class struggle and created the Young Communist International. This is in reality, then, the true successor of the International Union of Socialist Youth Organisations. The few socialist youth organizations which had never belonged to an international league, for reformist reasons, before the war; or which had broken away from the International Union during the war; or which were later created by the social democrats in opposition to the revolutionary youth organizations, formed the Young Workers' International and the International Working Union of Socialist Youth Organisations, in 1921. They thereby split the united front of the working class youth under the banner of revolution, and in 1923 they united into a single reformist organization, directed against the Young Communist International. Unlike the social democratic internationals which are merely loose federations, the Young Communist International is built upon the principle of international centralization. Its decisions are the supreme laws for all national sections. The practical tasks of the Young Communist International are: International agitation, and the execution of international actions; leadership of the Young Communist Leagues in all their activities; support of the national sections in their work; organization of new Leagues; and the cultivation of the spirit of solidarity among the revolutionary youth of all countries. The Young Communist International accepts the principles of the Communist International and forms^one of its sections. The Executive Committee of the Young Communist International maintains close contact with the Executive Committee of the Communist International and is subjected to the latter's political leadership. The Young Communist International has appointed the first Sunday in September as International Youth Day for the international celebration of the young workers, the day on which they manifest their will to fight for their demands until they have attained the final victory of their principles. A new epoch in the history of the working class youth began with the foundation of the Young Communist International. Na- 45-
