Our Opinion of the Reality PDF Print E-mail

1.      The active participation of young people in the protests in Egypt, Tunisia, and other Arab countries has motivated us. However, the hidden interests by the USA and a number of European countries and their desire to exercise some control over the oil resources in these countries will probably influence the outcome of the governments in these countries.

 

2.      We think neo-liberalism promotes economic profit, consumerism, individualism, egoism and the dominance of the economic superpowers and multinational corporations.  It has major negative influences in the working conditions, freedom, dignity and well-being of people in these countries. It causes divisions and does not promote the empowerment of young workers.  It can discourage us from challenging unjust systems and bad working conditions.

 

3.      We believe that creating just work (decent jobs) must be a top priority, not only in the advanced economies, but also in many poorer countries. Without jobs and income security, there can be no sustainable growth. Therefore, what we want from our leaders is a positive response to concerns such as instability in our work, high unemployment, increase in food prices, inflation, low minimum wages, gender discrimination, etc.

4.      We believe that social protection is the only way we can face and overcome the most vulnerable living and working situations in society. 

 

5.      We believe that young people have the lowest levels of participation in the political sphere.  Adults are not ready to share power with us. They think young people lack the commitment, capacity and temperament to participate in decision making processes. However, we want our voices to be heard and enough space to be given to us so that we can participate meaningfully in the political sphere.

 

6.      We believe that there is a need for the equal participation of young women in all aspects of the society, and that this needs to take into account the multiple tasks and roles - visible and invisible, productive and reproductive – played by young women workers in our society.

 

7.      We believe that there is increasing awareness among people of the need to promote human and spiritual values both in work and in the life of a community. This we see as an important development and we believe that it is absolutely essential that the world becomes aware of values and spiritual references and promotes them in politics, human rights and social issues.
