Rojava at risk « immanence

The Rojava Emergency Committee is asking that U.S. citizens urge their congressional and Senate representatives, as well as Elliot Engel, incoming Democratic chair of the Foreign Relations Committee, not to withdraw from Rojava. Please do that if you care about the largest stateless nation in the world (which happens to be building what’s probably the largest experiment in anarcha-feminist radical eco-democracy history has seen).

        thanks will check it out, we have very little in the way of cosmopolitan culture here in the pasteurized whitebread world of Iowa City but for some reason the Japan Foundation brings us pretty edgy current writers and they have some public readings and translation workshops, all very interesting while it lasts.

      • Good to know, but your last “while it lasts” comment unsettling. . . .

        ah yeah both in terms of the come and go nature of the visits and I fear in terms of the funding but I’ll take it while it lasts:
