The Red Youth was a communist movement in the Netherlands. The organization stem from a group of people around the magazine “The Red Youth” founded in 1966 by the Pro-Chinese Red Flag movement.
In 1967, relatively shortly after the emergence, the group split from the Red Flag movement to set up its own organization.
A small group of 15 people traveled to South Yemen to follow a camp of the People’s Front for the liberation of Palestine combat training, where the RAF was also doing it’s training. In the end, a number of attacks, including bomb attacks, were conducted mainly in and around teh city of Eindhoven in the Netherlands. However, no of these actions were people killed.
In September 1972, the car from the Chief Commissioner of the police and the house of the mayor was blown up. When preparing attacks, the Red Youth was also assited by the Marxist-Leninist Party in the Netherlands. In fact, the MLPN was a undercover operation of the domestic security service.
Part of the Red Youth was the Red Aid, in support of prisoners and the Red Resistance Front, an organization that conducted protestactions in support of caught RAF members and also provided certain support to the RAF.
