Saturday, July 22, 2017 - 14:00 to 17:00

Jura Books, 440 Parramatta Rd, Petersham
The Kurdish-led Rojava Revolution in northern Syria is arguably the most progressive political project in the Middle East today. Navigating a progressive course in the difficult context of the Syrian civil war, the Kurds are fighting against terrible odds while steadfastly building a revolutionary experiment in democracy and autonomy. Paul Rubner will give a talk focussing on the aims, ideas, and prospects of the Rojava Revolution, and will discuss issues raised by this exemplary revolutionary phenomenon, and attempt to assess the varying attitudes within the Left towards it.
