Bareedo Platform Somalia honours the commemoration of Somali Youth Day, an annual event that signifies the beginning of the struggle for independence by a group of young Somalis in seventy-seven years ago on 15 May 1943 under the banner of the Somali Youth League (SYL). The SYL became an instrumental organization in Somalia’s push for independence and their sacrifices, struggle and patriotism united the Somali people, created the country’s flag and led to the recognition of Somalia by the international community.
In this important occasion, Bareedo Platform Somalia would like to appeal to all Somali youths, including those who have lost hope, to regain confidence in their country and collectively build Somalia.
Bareedo Platform Somalia would like to appeal again to all Somali youth to learn from the patriotic and heroic role of Somali Youth League (SYL) in participation of country’s political process and successful independence and state building of Somalia and to be prepared to pay the same price for the next generation to enjoy peace and prosperity and actively participate in today’s need for transforming Somalia into democratic and prosperous state.
