Paraguayan Youth Join Forces to Achieve Social Demands
Asuncion, May 5 (PL-RHC) -- Fabrizio Arniella, a member of the Coordinating Youth Branch of Paraguay’s ruling Guasú Front, said his organization began a structuring process on Saturday aimed at promoting unity and achieving social demands in the country.
In comments to Prensa Latina news agency, Arniella, who is also vice chair of the Communist Youth, said the Coordinating Youth Branch brings together youth groups of political parties and progressive movements that support the process of change started in April 2008 with the victory of Fernando Lugo in the presidential elections.
Referring to the hard work to be done by the recently created group, Arniella said the organization tries to combine the various claims and demands of young workers and the youth movement. He also said the structuring process is not only based on politics but on other issues concerning young people.
The first concrete activity carried out by the coordinating youth branch of the Guasú Front took place on May 1st, when various groups of young workers marched under slogans encouraging decent jobs and rejecting some bills brought to Parliament, which favor the criminalization of child and adolescents’ work.
As noted by Fabrizio Arniella, the very creation of the Coordinating Youth Branch is an open invitation to all young Paraguayans to join a broad, diverse and very heterogeneous group, a real synthesis of young people’s legitimate demands.
