Rojava Solidarity Film Screening and Q&A
January 19 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm PST
As part of Operation Watered Sprout, Olympia Assembly is putting on a film screening about the Rojava revolution followed by a Q&A with a member of the YPG. Any donations will go towards ecological projects in Rojava.
The Rojava revolution in Northern Syria is rooted in direct democracy, feminism, and ecology. There is communal self-governance and the majority of the economy is communal and cooperative. Rojava is a feminist revolution that has instituted formal equality and is moving beyond patriarchal gender norms. It is an ecological revolution focused on how good social relations can create good ecological relations. Rojava is aiming towards expanded projects of reforestation, organic gardening, and alternative energy.
