About imperialist support to the YPG-YPJ

Arthur explains that the American "support" to the YPG-YPJ should be considered as an objective alliance. The YPG-YPJ are perfectly aware that the US consider them as a tool to fight Daesh.

Rojava: the fraud of a non-existent social revolution

Cult of personality - portrait of Öcalan

Text from Mouvement Communiste and Kolektivně proti Kapitălu in response to recent myths propagated about the Rojava "revolution", with a detailed background about inter-imperial rivalries, the so-called "Kurdish question", national questions in general... To many leftists and anarchists, Rojava is a paradise on earth. We say: down with paradise!

We, supporters of Rojava, should be worried about its partnership with the United States.

This article covers the current military situation in Rojava. While the PYD and Syrian Democratic Party are getting closer and closer to United States some of the anarchists and anarchist-communists are happy with that. The article tries to bring the attention of those anarchists that the partnership between them is in the interest of US and its allies in Europe and the region . In the end, Rojava, might lose what it has been achieved so far.
