The Revolutionary Communist Youth (Swedish: Revolutionär Kommunistisk Ungdom, RKU) is the youth wing of the Swedish Communist Party. It was founded in 1994 as a successor of the Young Communist League of Sweden (marxist-leninists), which existed 1972-1978. RKU publishes a magazine called Rebell.
The organization believes that capitalist society is not capable of satisfying the needs of the people. RKU believes that there are clear examples of capitalism's failure in Sweden, with high unemployment and worsening education system, while large corporations make billions in profits.
RKU believes that the only long-term solution to the problems of capitalism is a revolutionary rearrangement of society at large, and the construction of a new socialist society, where production is made because of people's needs, and not for profit. RKU emphasizes that the coming socialist society must be democratic and controlled by the working class.
Rebell is a Swedish youth magazine published by the Revolutionary Communist Youth. It was founded in 1994.
