With the COVID-19 pandemic raging, the Kurdish people have to struggle not only against the deadly virus but also for their rights against the ongoing attacks of the reactionary regimes and Islamist gangs. This forum looks at what is happening in the liberated zone of Rojava in northern Syria and in the Kurdish homelands in Turkey, Iraq and Iran and the ongoing need for international solidarity.

  • Ercan Ayboga — Kurdish ecologist & activist, co-author of Revolution in Rojava
  • Hawzhin Azeez — Kurdish feminist specialising in gender & Middle Eastern studies, currently teaching at the American University in Iraq
  • Suheyla Ahmed — Kurdish activist based in Australia
