Planting trees

Rojava has been systematically deforested for years because of the colonial policies of the Syrian Ba’ath regime. In order to exploit the land as much as possible, monoculture has been imposed in the Kurdish regions, leading to the deforestation of the region and the present-day uniformity of the landscape’s. This poses serious ecological problems. With our “Make Rojava Green Again” campaign, we are supporting the reforestation efforts of the self-administration by planting trees and establishing a tree nursery.

Harnessing wind

Despite the economic embargo imposed on Rojava by the neighboring states, we will construct the first wind turbine in Northern Syria. Most of the grid electricity in Rojava comes from hydroelectric dams, with about a quarter derived from the natural gas which flares up during oil production. Even though the region is suited to harnessing both wind and solar energy, due to the regime’s decades-long oil-focused policy for Rojava’s economy there has been little progress in developing renewable forms of energy.

Reusing water

The adequate supply of water for household and agricultural use is a critical problem for Rojava, and it has various causes. On the one hand, climate change has meant a shortening of the rainy season and less rain in general. On the other, Turkey deliberately obstructs the water flow of the main rivers – the Xabur and Euphrates. We would like to start working on systems to filter water from showers and the kitchen, in order to irrigate the shoots in our tree nursery.

by buying our book

In the winter months we conducted research on the ecological situation in Rojava. The book contains our findings and suggestions. This is the basis of our campaign “Make Rojava Green Again” and will be published in at least ten different languages in different regions all over the world. Currently it is only available in English. Folllowing the link you can get the book for £6.00. The money will be used to finance our projects in Rojava.

Come to Rojava, spread the word!

There are several ways you can support the Make Rojava Green Again campaign. We are looking for experts who can help us with different ecological projects – either visiting us here in Rojava or sharing their knowledge remotely. But we are also looking for volunteers to come and join our works in Rojava. All the projects require a huge amount of funding, in particular our mass reforestation campaign. We depend on donations to keep up our work. We would be delighted if you can either contribute, or simply spread the word about Make Rojava Green Again.

Revolution in Rojava

The three pillars of Democratic Confederalism
Women's liberation

No free society without free women: the millenia-long fight against the oppression of women is at the heart of the struggle of the Kurdish liberation movement. Women were the first slaves of humanity. Their enslavement and the emergence of the first forms of domination and exploitation paved the way for the development of hierarchical systems in human societies. Any movement beyond exploitative and oppressive systems will necessarily come through the release of women.

Ecology

The domination and exploitation of nature followed the emergence of hierarchies between humans. The relationship of a society with its natural environment depends on the way it is organized and the mentalities that accompany its ways of producing and distributing goods. There can therefore be no solution to ecological problems without social change. The destruction of our planet is largely caused by a criminal economic order that favours a small number and that survives only by uncontrollable growth and unbridled exploitation. In order to build a society in harmony with nature, we must first get rid of the entire system of oppression and exploitation between humans.

Grassroots democracy

Democratic confederalism rejects the model of the nation-state, which has proved incapable of increasing the freedom of the peoples. Instead, it proposes democratic organization from below. The basic unit is the communes and the free confederation between them. Decisions are taken by the people at popular assemblies, neighborhoods or villages, through the system of direct democracy.
