Rojava Revolution: Autonomous Self-Governance in Northern Syria

In Spring 2011, the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) of Rojava, northern Syria established a People’s Council of West Kurdistan around the concept of “democratic confederalism” wherein diverse peoples and political actors united under an autonomous anti-state structure of self-governance. Three regional “Cantons” formed a federated structure encompassing most of northern Syria.

[sea-organizing] NEXT TUESDAY: What's Up in the T'Sou-ke Hills? Info Session and Q&A

What's Up in the T'Sou-ke Hills? Info Session and Q&A
Tuesday, January 14, 2020 at 6 PM – 9 PM
Juan De Fuca Library meeting room, 1759 Island Hwy, Victoria

Join Friends of the T'Sou-ke Hills Wilderness for a presentation and Q&A session on the issues, threats and visions for this beloved magnificent local forest of our region.

Following the news that the provincial government will not be pursuing an alternate route to the Malahat through the local forest, we are keen to celebrate and capitalize on this victory in the new year.

Curious about what is going on in the T'Sou-ke Hills and what's next? Too many moving pieces and details to keep track of?

We'll help make you sense of it all, probe deeper into the issues, connect the dots and then discuss ways we can come together as a community to ensure this wilderness remains intact for the sake of all beings and future generations.
