Who should come to Rojava?

We welcome anyone who has made an effort to understand the principles of the Rojava revolution, and is prepared to come here to learn, support and organize on the basis of these principles. We are particularly hoping to hear from experienced activists and/or professionals who can contribute to our shared learning process in the projects we are currently working on.

This includes:
– ecological activists, people with experience of permaculture and green/ecological autonomous projects
– engineers, hydrologists, agriculture experts
– language teachers, doctors and other medical personnel, translators
– people with experience of community organizing

People who already speak Kurmanci, or who know Arabic, are of course also very useful here.However, what is most important is that people come prepared to learn from the principles of the revolution and challenge their previous conceptions. We need more than just experts – we are looking for committed people with ideals.


What will I be doing?

A main principle of ours at the commune is to learn from the principles of the Rojava revolution and the ideas of Abdullah Ocalan, in both theory and practice. When you arrive you should expect to spend time studying the Kurdish language and Ocalan’s ideas, and to put these into practice during practical work at the Commune – for example physical work relating to the Make Rojava Green Again campaign.

In time, most members of the commune will go into society across Rojava to work in different civil structures. Members of the commune are currently involved in projects including the autonomous structures among Yazidi people in Shengal; autonomous women’s structures, the women’s village and the Jineology research centers; youth work; medical work; media work; English, art and boxing classes; ecological projects; and the Make Rojava Green again campaign.

But there is also space here to build and develop your own projects and ideas, in a liberated land free from the repression and constraints of the nation states. If you have ideas for new projects to contribute to our work we are happy to hear from you.
