About the CJB

A short introduction to the CJB

CJB stands for Communist Youth Movement of the Netherlands, a marxist-leninist political youth organisation. We were founded in september 2003 as an independent continuation of the NCPN-Youth, a platform inside the New Communist Party of the Netherlands (NCPN). We are politically and ideologically allied to the NCPN. We are mainly active organising working, unemployed and studying youth in the trade-unions, studentunions, and community platforms. Besides that we take part in the broad anti-fascist / anti-racist movement against both the populist and traditional extreme-right.

Since 2003 our organisation has been growing steadily, with branches in several of the major cities of our country. In the past years we have participated in several international events, such as the annual Meetings of European Communist Youth Organisations (MECYO). The CJB is also in the process of becoming a full member of the World Federation of Democratic Youth, an international anti-imperialist and anti-fascist youth federation which unites progressive and left-wing youth organizations all over the world.
