19th Congress of KKE

Message of Greetings of the International Relations Committee of the CC of KNE to the Front of Communist Youth – Italy for its vanguard role in the school student mobilizations on 22/02/2019


The Communist Youth of Greece (KNE) salutes the just struggle of the school students of Italy that demonstrated on February 22, 2019 all over the country, for the first time since the passage of the new state budget of the Italian government, which provides for a further 4 billion reduction in Education funding. KNE sends its comradely greetings to the Front of Communist Youth (FGC), which is at the forefront of the organization, as well as of the content and slogans of the mobilizations.

Just like in Greece, the youth of Italy fights against the anti-educational policy of the government-EU-capital that crashes its rights in education and sets even more class barriers and obstacles in the education and the lives of the young people from working and popular families.

100.000 school students took to the streets in more than 50 cities of Italy last week, continuing thus a series of mass school student mobilizations that have been taking place since October. Escalating in this way the struggle against the reactionary reforms of the government, which subordinate education to the interests of the capitalists through the “school-work alternation” plan and the further cut of the state funding for education.


The Front of Communist Youth (FGC) of Italy plays a vanguard role, as it is at the forefront of the organization of the mobilizations against the anti-people reforms that the centre-left Renzi government started and the current Lega-M5S government promotes in order to promote the interests of the Italian bourgeois class. The FGC has contributed in the rally of thousands of school students all over the country and has emerged as the most significant force that acts for the rally and the struggle of the school students, while due to its intervention a National Student Assembly took place in December, for the organization and coordination of the struggle of the school students throughout the country. The members and friends of the FGC receive thousands of votes by their colleagues and are elected in the organs of the school student and university student movement.


We express the complete solidarity and support of all members and friends of KNE!

We wish you strength and good luck to your difficult but uniquely hopeful struggles!


KNE 2011
