Rojava & the Kurdish Fight for Freedom


The epic and heroic Kurdish defence of the north Syrian town of Kobanê against the Islamic State (October 2014-January 2015) first brought Rojava to the attention of the world.

Rojava is a remarkable people’s revolution. It has been marked by an absolutely unprecedented effort to empower women; a genuine ethnic and religious pluralism; grassroots democracy based on assemblies and communes; and a growing ecological concern.

This pamphlet attempts to provide an introduction to the Rojava Revolution and its struggle to survive in an extremely challenging situation, threatened by the IS, Turkey and the Assad regime.

But while Rojava is the focus, we also take up the wider Kurdish question. The Kurds are one people who have been split by imperialism between four countries and are denied justice and freedom in all of them.

They desperately need the support and solidarity of progressive people everywhere.
