How to Support the ecological revolution of the Kurdish Freedom Movement…
Rojava is a free and autonomous region of North-Eastern Syria where multiple ancient societies have settled long before the start of the first human civilizations.
People have lived in this territory for thousands of years beneficiating from its resources, its soil fertility and its water richness in a multicultural synergistic environment.
But since the last decades Rojava, as well as great parts of the middle east, has been place of colonization and exploitation for capitalistic accumulation and people’s oppression. Land has been deforested and biodiversity, soil fertility and water availability have decreased. People have been forced to move away from their native land because it became unable to support life. As if that was not enough, Rojava has recently been affected by a cruel war that brought death and further altered and destroyed its ecological balance, causing millions of refugees.
However, the population of Rojava never stopped their resistance and still refuses the colonial and capitalist offensives of the Syrian Baath regime and on the other side the Turkish fascist state, that worked hand in hand with terrorist groups such as ISIS. In opposition to those oppressive power, the population of Rojava started in 2012 a revolutionary process and implemented a system called “Democratic Confederalism”. This system, based on radical grassroots democracy, ecology and the liberation of women pushes for the autonomy of the different communities through the sharing and the common managing of their land and ecological practices are implemented to replace exploitative ones.
With the “Make Rojava Green Again” campaign, we want to support Democratic Confederalism as the way to create of a free and ecological life for North-Eastern Syria, for the Middle-East and for the whole world. Through our project, we gather people, ideas, knowledge and practices to rebuild the ecological balance between human and nature. It is not just about experts, Rojava needs people who wants to learn, participate and become part of the Revolution.
Rojava needs us, and we have so much to learn from Rojava. We need hope, faith, inspiration and new perspectives in a collective struggle against oppression. Learning from the Kurdish movement means to organize and spread the revolution.
And you can help us in many different ways….
