ANARCHY IN ROJAVA
After revisiting the Anarchist Alphabet for a look at G is for Gentrification the show goes into an interview with Nicky Danesh from the Middle Eastern Anarchist Network.
Nicky speaks about what is happening in Northern Syria in a region called Rojava.
Here’s what David Greaber had to say after visiting the region
Well, if anyone had any doubt in their minds about whether this was really a revolution, or just some kind of window-dressing, I’d say the visit put that permanently to rest. There are still people talking like that: This is just a PKK (The Kurdistan Workers’ Party) front, they’re really a Stalinist authoritarian organization that’s just pretending to have adopted radical democracy. No. They’re totally for real. This is a genuine revolution.
