19th World Festival of Youth and Students: Russian authorities tried to prohibit communist symbols!

With an intervention to the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Athens, the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) protested the unacceptable behaviour of the authorities in Sochi towards members of the Communist Youth of Greece (KNE) who were participating at the 19th Word Festival of Youth and Students

More specifically, as the 902 portal reports, the representatives of KNE faced unprecedented tight security measures and were prohibited from entering the festival venue because they had with them declarations for the 100 years of the October Revolution as well as communist banners with the sickle and hammer! 

 
On Wednesday, the members of KNE were detained by security forces for 30 minutes, while today, the authorities prohibited the entrance to the representatives of KNE for almost 2 hours. The explanation by the Russian authorities was that “the sickle and hammer symbol is illegal and the declarations of KNE consist dangerous material”! Representatives from other Communist Youths condemned the behaviour of the Russian authorities and expressed their solidarity to the members of KNE.
 
Under the pretext of “security”, the Russian government seems to have unleashed an attack to freedoms and rights, by criminalizing communist symbols (e.g. sickle and hammer) and prohibiting delegations of Communist Youths from entering the Festival. 
 
In a letter addressed to the Russian Embassy, the Communist Party of Greece complained about the behaviour of the authorities in Sochi, mentioning that the incident undoubtedly tarnishes such a big and important event.

Take a look at never-before-seen pictures of Soviet youth in Sputnik’s gallery.

Despite living in a communist country, Soviet young people were enjoying the best time of their lives, which seems to be much more exciting than contemporary times. They had no gadgets or fidget spinners, but they traveled, practiced sports and partied hard at rock concerts. It seems that the youth of the XX century was legendary.

KKE welcomes 30 Communist and Anti-imperialist youth organisations participating at KNE Festival

https://communismgr.blogspot.com/2017/09/kke-welcomes-30-communist-and-anti.html
A meeting between representatives of 30 Communist and Anti-imperialist youth organisations which participate at the 43rd KNE-Odigitis Festival and the Secretary General of the CC of the KKE Dimitris Koutsoumbas was held earlier today at the Party’s headquarters in Perissos, Athens. 
 
In his welcome speech, D.Koutsoumbas said:
 
“We welcome in the headquarters of the CC of the KKE the 30 Communist and Anti-imperialist youth organisations from all over the world which are in Greece for the 43rd KNE-Odigitis Festival.
In an era of strengthening of the imperialist interventions, antagonisms and contradictions, which take place always at the cost of the peoples and the youth of the countries, during a period when the economic capitalist crises, poverty, unemployment, (displacement) of refugees are strengthening, what is- more than ever- needed is the invigoration of international solidarity, the common struggle of the people and the youth, the coordination of the action, so that we can encounter capitalist barbarity, to pave the way for the socialist future of our countries.
 
This task, within the frame of the KNE Festival, we are trying to implement, by exchanging opinions, thoughts, discussing and organizing our common struggle”.

Elizabeth Warren Obliterates Trump For Rolling Back Obama-Era Student Debt Relief Rules

 

Elizabeth Warren Obliterates Trump For Rolling Back Obama-Era Student Debt Relief Rules

By on

The two rules being reworked by the administration help protect students from shady lending behavior and assist them in finding jobs after college that allow them to pay off their debt.

Elizabeth Warren Obliterates Trump For Rolling Back Obama-Era Student Debt Relief Rules

Responding to this week’s quiet announcement by the Trump administration that they plan to roll back two Obama-era rules that help students repay their burdensome debt, Elizabeth Warren obliterated Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.

In a series of tweets, Warren said her and the administration’s decision to reconsider the protections makes it more likely for students to be “cheated” and less likely for them to get out from under massive student loan debt.

As The Hill noted today, the two rules being reworked by the administration are the borrower defense and gainful employment rules, which help protect students from shady lending behavior and assist them in finding jobs after college that allow them to pay off their debt.

As Warren said in a separate statement, the move by the Trump Department of Education would be an assault on the consumer protections of students.

“Students shouldn’t have the pause button hit on their consumer protections, and this isn’t the time for the Department of Education to step back from their responsibility to protect federal loan borrowers,” the Massachusetts senator said.

Reworking the rules in favor of for-profit institutions may benefit the moneyed interests that support this administration, but it’s certainly not helpful to millions of American students burdened with insurmountable debt.
