About Speaker & Lecture

The Emergency Committee for Rojava presents a report by journalist and author Debbie Bookchin, who has recently returned  from the autonomous Kurdish-led region in Northern and Eastern Syria. Topics include: why it is critical to defend this feminist, ecological, democratic project from Turkey and from the Assad regime; why the Kurds and Rojava must be represented in peace negotiations; and the need for global assistance in dealing with the thousands of captured ISIS fighters and their families.
