The inhumanity and violence being experienced by the Black community in the US has been deeply shocking and traumatising to those with a conscience and those who wish to build communities based on mutual respect, humanity, cooperation and support, writes Hawzhin Azeez. In order for that alternative society to emerge in places like the US, the people's revolution in north and east Syria (Rojava) must be considered more seriously, and actively studied and emulated.

While the world battles the COVID-19 pandemic, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's right-wing government continues to attack the liberated region of north and east Syria, writes Peter Boyle

The people of North and East Syria — a region commonly known as Rojava — are facing increased risk of contracting COVID-19 due to its rapid spread in neighbouring countries, writes Kerry Smith.

The region of Rojava in Northern Syria, which cares for millions of civilians with less money and resources than virtually any other state on the planet, is on the verge of a catastrophe, reports Syrian Democratic Times.

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan met Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on March 5, where they agreed on a plan for a ceasefire in Syria’s Idlib province, writes Chris Slee.

While Turkey and Greece have turned refugees away from their borders, Peter Boyle reports that the revolutionary Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (better known as Rojava) has welcomed refugees from war-devastated Idlib province in Syria.

There are currently two wars being fought in northern Syria, writes Chris Slee.

Turkish forces have invaded Rojava — the Kurdish-majority multi-ethnic territory of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AA). In a telephone call to Turkey’s authoritarian President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, United States president Donald Trump gave the invasion a green light.

The people of Rojava in Northern Syria are continuing human shield actions along the Syria-Turkey border, to prevent an invasion of the region by the Turkish state.

A human shield action in the border village of Qeremox, located to the east of Kobane has been continuing for more than 40 days.

The human shields come from Kobane Canton. Representatives of political parties and civil society organisations in the region are paying solidarity visits to the actions.

In the border region of Serekaniye, a human shield action has been continuing for more than 18 days.

Ecology — together with democratic confederalism and women’s liberation — is an essential pillar of the Rojava Revolution. What is happening in Rojava is about more than just protecting nature by limiting damage to it; it is about reestablishing the balance between people and nature.
