The Revolution in Rojava

A remarkable revolution has been taking place in Northern Syria, based on women’s liberation, ecological sustainability, and democratic confederalism. Yet it’s in danger of being wiped out by the Turkish state, which has long wanted to annihilate the Kurdish population of the region. Scholars Laura Fantone and Andrej Grubacic discuss what’s at stake in Rojava and why the U.S. left should come to its defense.
