About the Event

About the Kurdish Movement:

Post the fall of the Ottoman empire, the Kurds found themselves  scattered across the nations of Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey. The  Kurdish Movement, through its quest for greater cultural rights and  independence, is building a model that challenges the viability of the  modern nation-state. Rojava is one such autonomous region in  northeastern Syria (Western Kurdistan) that has attempted to establish  its own means of social justice and governance.  Rojava’s experiment in democratic confederalism, built on principles of  pluralism, ecology, and feminism, offers a new model of radical  democracy and gives us hope in these difficult times.

We're joined by a speaker (name withheld at their request) who has been involved with the Kurdish Movement for the past three years  on the ground as a medic in the war time and also in media, ecologic,  and social work.
