Solidarity with the revolution in Rojava

We were honored to host this incredible panel of folks working in solidarity with the attempts to build a pluralistic, feminist, and directly-democratic society in the autonomous cantons of northern Syria and other areas of what was the Kurdish homeland before its arbitrary partition at the end of WWI. These incredibly inspiring efforts are under attack, not just from the theocratic gangsters of ISIS, but increasingly from the authoritarian Turkish state, where President Edrogan sees the progressive, multi-ethnic, pro-Kurdish HDP as a threat to his grasp on power.

For those who want to learn about efforts to support demonstrations in the region in support of the revolution in Rojava, or help organize more solidarity events and benefits, there is a new Baltimore Rojava Solidarity Committee that you should join.
