I wanted to share a special message from our colleague and comrade, *Şervîn
Nûdem* of the Jineolojî Academy in Rojava (West-Kurdistan) in the
Democratic Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria, apprising us
of the current political situation in Rojava, and how an article on the
Radical Ecological Democracy website resonated with her. The article *Şervîn
is* referencing in the note below is:


In solidarity,

Pallav Das

Here's *Şervîn's note;*

*"As you are asking about the present situation here in Rojava: I don't
know how much you are able to follow the news from this region, but
Turkey's occupation war with increasing aggression and attacks is
continuing. In addition to the military attacks on regions in South
Kurdistan which involve repeated use of chemical weapons against HPG
guerilla units, also war crimes against the people in Rojava are
continuing. More or less daily, community leaders and activists are
targeted by Turkish drone attacks in different regions of North Syria and
in Shengal. Here we see clearly the horrific results of, "Techno Fascism as
a part of Settler Colonialism" as it has been called in the RED-article. I
don`t know if Pegasus malware has been involved in these cases, but we
witnessed that more than a dozen brave women and men who played an
important role in liberating these soils from the IS-fascists, have been
executed during the last days due to missile attacks on their cars  -
especially in Kobanê. We are confronted with a murderous special warfare on
all levels, while the international public watches silently. Furthermore
Erdogan seems to prepare for another large scale military invasion against
the region of Democratic Autonomy in the coming days. As more and more
people are discontent with his fascist regime and the economic crisis in
Turkey, he tries again to mobilise with nationalist-fundamentalist slogans
for another neo-ottoman occupation campaign. Against this everywhere in
Rojava the people are full of rage and anger. Together, we are determined
to defend our lives, our dignity, the land and the hope of all people
living here. Today is Nov, 1st - the World Kobanê Resistance Day. This day
has shown us that peoples' international solidarity can gain victory
against the fascist mercenary troops of imperialist powers."*
