Belfast Socialist Youth has re-launched the Young Socialist bulletin to raise awareness of Socialist Youth, the issues we have been campaigning on and the need for a socialist alternative. We distributed over 600 into schools, techs and colleges and got a friendly response.
The bulletin included an article on attacks on young workers rights, like Gordon Brown’s plan to cut our minimum wage from £5.52 to £4.80 an hour and Sir Reg Empey’s attack on apprentices, as well as the fact that Socialist Youth are exposing low-paying employers through our Fightback! campaign. An article also appeared on our sticker campaign against fascist material being put up around Belfast.
Next month’s bulletin will deal with the issue of youth debt, an important issue with 19% of 22-24 year olds having short-term debts over £5,000 and the present situation in Iraq.
