Preparation for the IAIAFYC in Brazil
The XXI International Anti-Imperialist and Anti-Fascist Youth Camp (IAIFYC) will take place from July 24 to August 3 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The event will be held at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), and will host political debates, workshops, lectures and cultural activities that will be part of the program of the camp.

The camp, which is held every two years, is organized by the International Preparatory Committee (IPC), which is made up of youth organizations of various countries. The Union of Rebel Youth (UJR) is the Brazilian organization that is part of the IPC, and has the main responsibility for the 21st celebration of the event.

Held since the end of the Second World War, the XXI International Anti-Imperialist and Anti-Fascist Youth Camp has become an important centre of debate on the actions of imperialism and fascism in the world and a vehicle for mobilizing international youth around the struggle for their rights, awakening internationalist feelings and contributing to the building of socialism. The international camp takes place in countries of Latin America and Europe alternately. The 20th celebration took place in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The IAIAFYC is already mobilizing delegations from 20 countries in addition to preparatory committees in 12 Brazilian states. The committees are open to all anti-imperialist and anti-fascist youth and involve debates and political activities in the states. Registration for delegations who want to present workshops and cultural activities in the camp is open.

Who are these people? Fascism is not a real worry. Problems come from day to day bourgeoise democracy. Wrong to mention fascism and not capitalism.

The Maoists in South America are bankrupt. In Venezuela they are involved with trying to overthrow Hugo Chavez.

In Peru the Shining Path is terrorist and reactionary.

The groups you mentioned they are not link to these people.

Although quality is important compare to quantity or quantity based timely actions. These are young people with world perspective on a way to build up a world platform. And while WSF a world platform which is dominated by NGOs and being handicapped, here efforts are fresh, rooted to ground.

Yes you are right; Fascism is not a real worry, actually as these camps were held time from second world war in every two year, so fascism word attached to it.

Of course young struggles and activities of some other part of world also can be monitored.

EIJAA: a history of struggles and combativeness :
The movement of international youth camps appeared to gather and organize the struggle of youth in all parts of the world. The end of the 1970 presented a scenario of significant changes. The geopolitical situation showed the polarization between the Socialist camp, taking forward the Soviet Union, which also brought together the countries of Eastern Europe, the socialist countries of Asia and the popular governments in Africa and the capitalist countries and the United States as the dominant imperialist parents.
At the same time in Latin America is fortalecia the fight for democratic freedoms against the military dictatorships trained and financed by the CIA and the revolutionary movement was under way in several countries, focusing on the triumph of the Sandinista Revolution in 1979 in Nicaragua.
In the decades following, with the deepening of the intensification of contradictions and class struggle and the retreat of the "socialist camp" and the collapse of East European countries, the imperialist countries have given their offensive and fascism reappeared in several European countries. It was during this period that the meetings of the International Youth Antifascista and Antiimperialista (EIJAA) have matured.
Over the past ten years the meetings grew, not only to expand the number of participating countries, but with the intensification of fighting the rise of popular mobilization of youth in Latin America, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia.
In 2008, to fight youth wins new impetus. The mobilizations and anti antiimperialistas grow and gain size bigger. Struggles in France, Mexico, Chile, the resistance of the Iraqi people, Afghan and Palestinian, are practical examples of this new period of rupture with the imperialist oppression.
The history of preparation and implementation of EIJAA means advance the struggle of youth and peoples throughout the world, intensifying the spirit of solidarity and friendship among peoples, and increasing struggle for socialism.
