MariborIsTheFuture 88: Rojava, lection 1 - Democratic Autonomy and Liberation of Women
The topic of the 88th podcast MariborIsTheFuture, made by the art community GT22, is the liberation movement and revolution in Rojava, the northern Kurdish region of Syria. The discussion evolved around the alternative political system the citizens of Rojava developed on the basis of self-governance and direct democracy. And the liberation of women, which is a crucial part of the social revolution in this area.
