Who WE ARE

Young Revolutionaries in Solidarity

Young Revolutionaries in Solidarity (YRS) is a revolutionary youth led campaign fighting against all forms of oppression in society. We are a youth organisation affiliated to Tamil Solidarity. We campaign in Universities with young people who want to bring change within their campuses and within South Asia where students and young people want to build the fight back.

Our current campaign is against the appeal verdict of Brigadiar Priyanka Fernando. Read more about it within our statement.

Events

We organise regular public meetings for students and young people who want to learn more about Tamil history, current political climate in the UK and globally. This gives participants opportunity to learn, question and discuss about the topics.

Why we signed up

MEMBERS

There are many reasons to join us – here are a few reasons why

I joined YRS because I want to do my best to stand against all forms of oppression. I recognise and value knowledge, development and discussion as a form of community building.

Ahrabi

I joined TS as it was the only organisation that has a viable strategy to address the root cause of our struggle. We formed YRS to first organise Tamil youths to become a strong foundation for fighting oppression of not only Tamils in Sri Lanka but all oppressed communities.

Pretheepan

I joined YRS as I understand the limitations of young people struggling as individuals. We can make a greater impact as part of an organisation with a clear strategy putting forward demands for long term gains incorporated with short term gains.
