Representing the Student Council Alliance of the Philippines [The Alliance], National Secretariat Head Miguel Angeles joined the International Union of Socialist Youth [IUSY] Asia Pacific Committee meeting held last February 17-19, 2012 at Jakarta, Indonesia.

Founded in 1907 in Stuttgart, IUSY encompasses socialist, social democratic and labor party youth organizations from more than 100 states of the world. IUSY is a member of the Socialist International [SI].

The meeting tackled the challenges faced by the progressive youth in the region such as climate change, women oppression and democratization.  The Asia Pacific Committee also outlined young progressives’ role in shaping the political landscape in the region.

The Alliance is a candidate for membership in IUSY as the former shapes its socialist and social democratic narrative within the Philippine student movement.

As the largest student council and student political party formation in the country, the application for membership to IUSY is a strategic move that could strengthen The Alliance’s international solidarity works.

The Alliance’s International Committee is headed by its International Secretary Brian Llamanzares of the Ateneo de Manila University and Cleo Leogrado of the De La Salle University serving as Deputy International Secretary.

IUSY will be holding its 29th World Congress in the 20th-22nd of April in Asuncion, Paraguay.
