BOOK LAUNCH: “Revolution in Rojava” by Michael Knapp, Anja Flach and Ercan Ayboga (Pluto Press, 2016)

We are pleased to invite you to the launch of “Revolution in Rojava”, an eye-witness account on the experience of creating a bottom up social order which actively challenges all forms of oppression and exploitation. The struggle in Rojava (a mostly Kurdish region north of Syria), despite the extent of counterrevolutionary and imperialist forces aligned against it, continues to nurture an autonomous, grassroots resistance across its multiply ethno-religious communities. The book describes in detail the experiences of the participants, the social and ideological evolution of the popular struggle, and most importantly, the attempt, in the most adverse circumstances imaginable, to nurture horizontalist social structures that make tangible an inclusive and participatory society, based on radical democracy and a cooperative economy.

We will have the opportunity to discuss the contents of the book and the unspeakable violence faced by the Kurdish liberation movement with Ercan Ayboga, a political and environmental activist, co-author of this indispensable guide to understand one of the most important movements in the Middle East, as crucial as it is misunderstood.

All welcome. Books will be available for sale.

“Surrounded by enemies including ISIS and hostile Turkish forces, the people of Syria’s northern Rojava region are carving out one of the most radically progressive societies on the planet. Visitors have been astounded by the success of their project, a communally organised democracy which considers women’s equality indispensable and rejects reactionary nationalist ideology while being fiercely anti-capitalist.

The people of Rojava call their new system democratic confederalism. It boasts gender quotas of 40%, bottom-up democratic structures, deep-reaching ecological policies and a self-defence capacity which is keeping ISIS from the gates”.
