Rojava Revolution - why socialists support the pro-feminist, ecosocialist, multi-ethnic and democratic con-federalist revolution in northern Syria.
The Turkish government is attempting to eradicate the Kurdish-led project, but the Rojava project is surviving, albeit with the setback of the fall of Afrin. Get the latest on the situation in Afrin (now under brutal Turkish military occupation).
GREEN LEFT WEEKLY presents:
After Afrin: What now for northern Syria’s feminist, democratic revolution?
Tuesday, April 17, 6:30 pm (meal from 6 pm), Resistance Centre, Level 5, 407 Swanston Street.
Speakers: HAWZHIN AZEEZ (Kurdish solidarity activist, editor of the The Middle Eastern Feminist via video link from Kobanê) & Dave Holmes - solidarity activist & Socialist Alliance member.
The deepening climate and environmental crises present us with an urgent need for change. But what type of change is necessary? Can we keep the structures of a class-divided, profit-driven model that empowers a few, or do we need far-reaching change that puts power in the hands of the vast majority and puts the planet and people ahead profit. Such an alternative is ecosocialism. Join us as we unpack its meaning and ways in which we can achieve a sustainable, humane future for all.
Dinner at 6pm, meeting starting @ 630pm
