Mayday call by the Internationalist Commune of Rojava.
Statement from Şehîd Şevger’s anarchist comrades in Rojava.
Afrin has become the scene of the latest episode of the bloody war in Syria. After two months of intense resistance, the SDF [Syrian Democratic Forces, a multiethnic militia led by the Kurdish YPJ/YPG] have withdrawn from the city that gives its name to the Afrin Canton so as to ensure that civilians have an evacuation route. This strategic maneuver is motivated by the necessity to protect hundreds of thousands of civilians that live in the city among which, scores of refugees from many parts of Syria. Until this episode, Afrin had been an oasis of peace and stability in which more than 300,000 refugees had found a home in the otherwise war-torn Syria. But now the intense shelling and the Turkish airstrikes have forced over a million people to flee their homes.
This Newroz we want to thank all the international solidarity with the revolution in Northern Syria and the Afrin resistance, especially all the people working for organize actions and movilizations in solidarity with the #WorldAfrinDay. All the demonstrations and initiatives to defend Afrin are very important, not only for raising awareness all around the world, but also for giving moral and hope to the all the people resisting under the bombs and the oppression of turkish fascism.
Call for a global action day for Afrin on March 24, by the Internationalist Commune.

This month marked the official beginning of the campaign launched by the Internationalist Commune of Rojava under the name ‘Make Rojava Green Again’, which aims to pinpoint the current ecological issues present in Rojava as an aftermath of the civil war in Syria. ‘Make Rojava Green Again’ thus seeks to utilize practical work to contribute to the environmental preservation, as well as it adds to the manifestation of the ideological framework of the Rojava revolution in all aspects of daily life.
