The latest 'Organise' is worth a read including some useful material on struggles in North Africa and the Middle East but the 'skeptical' attitude towards ''...the libertarian rhetoric of the PKK..'' and the uncritical ''....support for any grass roots movements for popular assemblies...' etc in relation to the Kurdish national movement is at least questionable and less clear than this comment for instance: http://manchesteraf.org/2014/10/16/kobane-and-the-kurds/

The AF statement that has now appeared here: http://libcom.org/news/anarchist-federation-statement-rojava-december-20... whatever the limitations of such a short statement is a sound and balanced account and very useful clarification (better than anything I've seen so far on the IAF site).

Next perhaps a more detailed critique of Murray Bookchin's 'democratic confederalism' and 'libertarian municipalism' strategy.

Partly my fault but the discussion following the AF statement on Rojava I referenced above has now broadended out considerably beyond it's origins.
