Young People of Flanders Speak Up and Are Ready to Act! PDF Print E-mail

alt

 

The National Congress of KAJ Flanders that took place last November 14-15, 2016 at the Generation Europe youth hostel was a great success. It was attended by around 35 young people coming from different regions of Flanders. The two-day congress was fun, filled with dynamic activities and debates on the reality young people and the movement are facing today.

 

The National Congress worked on four different themes: (1) strengthening the base groups and actions of the different regions; (2) equal opprtunities for everybody; (3) respect for life and solidarity among people; (4) decent life at work and school. These four themes are the main campaign of KAJ Flanders for the coming four years (2017-2020).

International Women’s Day 2016: Reclaiming the Dignity of Young Women PDF Print E-mail

Joint Press Release of IYCW and MIJARC

 

altSince the creation of the human being, women are equal to men in all aspects of life in administrating this planet. As time went passing by, women have been stripped of their dignity and experienced terrible violence and slavery at home, at their work place and in society.

 

The current society, with its way of life and culture, has produced more inequality, forcing women to live in a more vulnerable situation globally. The United Nations as a collective political power has failed and seems to continue failing to bring change and transformation towards equality, as the effort that has been made is not really addressing the main problem but is just a mere political veneer.

YCW Germany: Celebrating the Feast of Saint Precarious on February 29 PDF Print E-mail

altWho is Saint Precarious?

 

Saint Precarious is a fictional saint although an iconic image was created to recall Catholic saints believed to protect the faithful. The “saint” made his first appearance in October 2004 in Italy during protests against multinational chains and corporations. It is dedicated to spread awareness on casual independent employment contracts, the so-called “Precarious Work”.

 

February 29 as the feast day
