Is the newest country in the Middle East a Kurdish territory in northern Syria called ‘Rojava’?
From the frontlines to the refugee camps, Darius Bazargan of ‘Our World’ has gained exclusive access to Rojava, and a revealing snapshot of Syria’s secret revolution.
Out of the chaos of Syria’s civil war, mainly Kurdish leftists have forged an egalitarian, multi-ethnic mini-state run on communal lines.
But with ISIS Jihadists attacking them at every opportunity — especially around the beleaguered city of Kobane, how long can this idealistic social experiment last?
Rojava means ‘West’. It is based on Western Kurdistan. The revolution in Rojava is a part of the Kurdistan movement, which aims at Kurdistan’s self determination,including women’s rights and respect of all other nations, religions, ethnicities and universal human rights with social justices
Kurdish people have been under suppression by all Syrian central regimes since the end of World War One as a main victim of British Policy,similar to other parts of Kurdistan which are under occupation by Turkey, Iran and Iraq.
