WW1 – Opposing Imperialist Wars: Then & Now

A Young Communist League Scotland film, featuring Johnnie Hunter (YCL Scottish Organiser) & Dr Alan MacKinnon (Chair of Scottish CND). With the British Establishments attempts to turn 2014 into a celebration of the start of WW1 & portray the Great War as a noble & unavoidable conflict fought to preserve “freedom”, obvious parallels begin to emerge between 1914 and the seemingly endless wars that are being waged in the past decade or so.

As these wars are being waged – it’s today’s youth who are expected to do the fighting, relying disproportionately on youth who are desperate for employment of any kind, especially when it is tied in with offers of education and travel.

Today’s Communist Youth, today as in the period of the first World War, oppose these Imperialist Wars and we seek to expose the class forces, economics & power which are at play and which demand war & control of world resources, markets and people in order to maintain the Capitalist system.
