Report from Rojava

May 12 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Celebrate Mother’s Day this year by joining us in Seattle for a special event about women’s revolution!

Report from Rojava: Women’s Revolution, Direct Democracy & Social Ecology in North-East Syria will take place Sunday, May 12th @ 4pm, at Southside Commons, as part of the Emergency Committee for Rojava’s 2024 West Coast speaking tour featuring Debbie Bookchin and Arthur Pye.

After nearly twelve years, despite a relentless war of aggression waged by Turkey and ISIS, the Kurdish freedom movement, alongside the other diverse peoples of North-East Syria, continue to build and defend a sweeping social revolution rooted in the principles of direct-democracy, women’s liberation, cooperative economics, cultural pluralism and social ecology.

How is society being organized in Rojava? What are the revolution’s achievements and challenges? How did this movement transform chaos into social revolution, and what lessons could we apply to organizing our own local communities?

Join us as we discuss what is happening in Rojava, why it matters, and how we can stand in solidarity.

The Emergency Committee for Rojava is proud to be partnering with the Institute for Social Ecology (ISE), Democratic Socialists of America – Libertarian Socialist Caucus (DSA-LSC), and the Oil & Gas Action Network (OGAN) as co-sponsors of this tour. Additionally, the Seattle event will be co-sponsored by Seattle Democratic Socialists of America, PNW AANES Solidarity, and University of Washington’s Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies.

Admission is FREE to the public.
