ANE (Greek "Άλκιμος Νεολαία ΕΟΚΑ" - "Alkimos Neolaia EOKA" - Brave Youth of EOKA) was the EOKA youth movement during the struggle for Enosis (union of Cyprus with Greece) that took place between 1955 and 1959.

The youth organisation had a self-governing body that was directly responsible to the leader of EOKA (Georgios Grivas-Digenis).

Among its activities were handing out propaganda leaflets and magazines, recruitment, writing slogans on walls and demonstrating against the British rule in Cyprus.

Petros Yiallouros, who was shot dead during such a demonstration, was an ANE member.
