On Sunday April 8, a public meeting of unemployed youth was organized by the Unemployed Youth Movement (BNT) in Jhang. The topic of the meeting was “Economic & political crisis in Pakistan and its solution”. The meeting was presided over by comrade Adam Pal, and more than 90 young people from Faisalabad, Chiniot and Jhang including 15 female comrades participated.

The very successful congress of the Pakistani Marxists that we have reported on has had a wide echo across the South Asian subcontinent and beyond. Here we provide a taste of that and also reports of two very successful meetings Alan Woods spoke at after the congress at the National College of Arts in Lahore and the National Museum in Karachi.

After a very successful first day the congress delegates and visitors were in a very excited mood, discussing till late at night the issues raised in the sessions and commissions. Today the comrades gathered for the second day of the congress.
