Following genocide, Shengal reinvents itself anew
Following the 73rd genocide on the 3rd of August 2014 in which thousands of Êzidîs were massacred and thousands of girls and women taken as slaves, the Êzidî community has formed its very own military forces, councils, educational organisations, academies and political parties to protect their community from being subjected to any new massacre.

Salute to the Martyrs on the Fifth Anniversary of the Rojava Revolution
Today, July 19th marks the fifth anniversary of the Rojava Revolution. In commemoration, we, from the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement and Rojava Solidarity NYC, would like to extend our insurgent greetings. It is impossible to quantify the importance of the revolution for the Kurdish freedom struggle, for women's liberation, the anti-state struggle, and for the larger drive for revolution globally. But in the annals of history we are certain that this revolution will be recognized at the forefront of the most important moments in revolutionary history.
Through decisive battles against Daesh in Kobane, the liberation of the Yazidis in Shengal, the eventual liberation of Raqqa, and the coming defeat of the reactionary Turkish state, armed forces have carved out a path for dignity.
The Democratic Confederalist movement, with its roots in feminism, anti-capitalism, anti-state struggle, and multiplicity have constructed the revolutionary paradigm of our day. With these pillars it is of utmost importance for anarchists to participate, learn, and fight.
As you walk, we will walk with you, and as you fight we will fight. It is through the path of shared struggle, that the Rojava Revolution will spread beyond national confines and become truly international as it ushers in a new period for the world. It is here that as anarchists we will begin eradicating borders, overthrowing capitalists regimes, and fighting against all racist, patriarchal and colonial states.
It is in this vein that we offer revolutionary salutes to those we have come to know as comrades through their martyrdom. Today we mourn the recently fallen comrade Shehid Demhat Goldman, also known as Robert Grodt, who was recently martyred in battle. Comrades on the front all spoke highly of Demhat and we here in NYC will make sure his name lives on in history.
Revolutionary salute to the martyrs Paolo Todd. Michael Israel, and Jordan MacTaggart. Through their sacrifice the struggle for revolution continues.
The fallen, from all backgrounds and identities, demonstrates the potential for true international solidarity. From Ivana Hoffman and Abu Layla, to Mehmet Yoldaşh and Arin Mirkan, we must honor their bravery and memorialize the joining of people in this fight for world revolution.
As our objectives unite, our fighters live and die together, and the fate of our struggles become intertwined making international revolution a viable option once again.
We send our greetings to comrades in the IRPGF, the IFB, the YPG, the YPJ, the SDF and all revolutionary forces in Rojava.
Long live the Revolution!
Long live anarchism!
Martyrs are Immortal!

The foundation of federal system laid in communes
"In Rojava’s Kurdistan, historical developments in military, political and social areas are taking place. In Rojava, where a new life is being build led by women, communes in which all peoples take part, are being formed.
Life on the basis of a democratic nation is reactivating in Rojava’s Kurdistan. This takes place as the result of resistance and struggle beyond comparison. The women resisting with the motto, “Rojava revolution is a women’s revolution” are building the new life. As the women lead in every sphere of life including fighting on the fronts, they have formed the communes since the beginning of the revolution."
