The ANC Youth League calls on all its members and supporters to interact in the online media space with care and within the constitutionally acceptable manner. Members' views in public may be regarded as the views of the organisations they belong to therefore we urge members of the ANC Youth League to exercise caution and avoid any utterance or pronouncement that may contradict the official policy of the ANC and the ANC Youth League.

The ANC Youth League calls for peace in the Middle East. We appeal to all warring factions to safeguard the lives of ordinary citizens. The ANC Youth League draws its membership from all kinds of young people of all ancestries, including Jews. The line of march, in the Israeli-Palestine conflict, of the ANC Youth League is that of the ANC.
