“Help bring a new world into being in Rojava. And spread its vision: that a free, ecological society is possible everywhere.” – Debbie Bookchin
In the beginning of this year, we started the campaign “Make Rojava Green Again” together with the responsible entities within the self-administration for the ecological work. Several initial ecological projects, mainly the creation of a tree nursery, are in progress.
But an important part of the work has consisted of reflection about the meaning of ecology in the Rojava Revolution, and what an ecologic and democratic society can look like. Besides theoretical discussion, we made research about the ecological situation in Rojava and thought about perspectives and solutions based on our experiences here in the region.
“The ecological question is fundamentally solved as the system is repressed and a socialist social system develops. That does not mean you can not do something for the environment right away. On the contrary, it is necessary to combine the fight for the environment with the struggle for a general social revolution…” Abdullah Öcalan
