25th ANNIVERSARY OF SOWETO UPRISING

MEDIA STATEMENT ISSUED BY LUZUKO LUWACA
UDMYV NATIONAL SECRETARY

The UDM Youth Vanguard (UDMYV) finds inspiration in the memory of how powerful and mighty the courageous youth of our country was, and can be. 25 years down the line and the liberation that looked almost impossible has become a reality.

The UDMYV believes that our history must spur us toward greater unity and forging partnerships between all South Africans. We must be united in the spirit of South Africa by our common passion for our Country mobilising the creative spirit inherent in our rich diversity.

On this anniversary, we must not only remember the youth of yesteryear, but also the youth of today and tomorrow - the Future of South Africa.

The UDMYV, together with the United Democratic Movement leadership, will honour the heroes and heroines of 25 years ago and celebrate the possible brilliant future for the youth in the next 25 years and onwards.
