On reflection of youth and the future - Challenges of the current historical conjuncture!!

The role of youth in the struggle for a free, non -racial, non sexist and democratic South Africa is well recorded. The history of the struggle for liberation of this country cannot be complete without a reference to the role of youth in the liberation struggle throughout the different epochs of our revolution. Consequently, the impact of youth in the evolution of political paradigms, ideological orientation and the shaping of the traditions of mass struggles embodied in the African National Congress through the Youth League is equally recorded.

Youth unemployment is a collective challenge requiring collective action instead of political posturing and neo-liberal gibberish

On Tuesday, after we received the statistics from STATS SA (Employment, Unemployment, Skills and Economic Growth) our country was met with the bold words shouting "skills level of young black adults has regressed post 1994." These are the headlines Michael Cardo of the Democratic Alliance uses in order to draw attention to the DA Youth Employment Plan, or rather, a rehash of existing government plan coated in neo-liberal gibberish.

Youth Employment Accord offers Mass-Based and Holistic Approach to Employment Creation

The nature and extent of youth unemployment in the country requires more than loud rhetoric or a simple policy response. Right now approximately 25% of South Africans are unemployed and of those who are classified as being unemployed around 72% are young people between 15 and 35 years of age. That`s millions of young South Africans who simply cannot be absorbed into the open labour market. To place the burden squarely on the shoulders of the state is to underestimate the nature and character of the crisis itself.
