The Spartacus Youth Club intervenes into social struggles armed with the revolutionary internationalist program of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Trotsky. We work to mobilize youth in struggle as partisans of the working class, championing the liberation of black people, women and all the oppressed. We fight to win youth to the perspective of building the Leninist vanguard party that will lead the working class in socialist revolution, laying the basis for a world free of capitalist exploitation and imperialist slaughter. The SYC is the youth auxiliary of the Spartacist League, a Marxist organization, which publishes the bi-weekly newspaper Workers Vanguard.
