Rojava – A new born country

The solution doesn’t lie in old time nationalism imported from Europe, which has caused wars and genocides, but in cooperation and the making of alliaces – to create just, free, peaceful and sustainable societies.

After more than two and a half years of war, Syria is destroyed by the agony of bombs. The revolution, borned with democracy and freedom’s aims, has slowly turned into an islamist war for the land’s control. The Free Syrian Army has crumbled and, day after day, the jihadist groups are taking more and more power.

In this apocalyptic scenario, the Syrian Kurdistan raises its voice and carries out its dreams of freedom. After years of internal strife against Assad’s government, the Kurds, now taking advantage of the civil war, are preparing themselves for the enactment of a new state, the Rojava or Syrian Kurdistan.

Ideologically the Kurds have been preparing this moment since years. Now, they’re also moving militarly and politically towards the building of a new nation. From the military point of view, YPG’s (People’s Protection Units) soldiers have turned from an underground organization to a regular army, protecting the borders from Islamists Jabat Nusra Front and ISIS’s (The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant) attacks, while, politically, Salh Muslim with his PYD party, seeks for the enactment of a governmental establisment.

So everything seems to head, as happened in Iraq after the fall of Saddam Houssein, to a new federal state in Syria.
