The Internationalist Young Women working and living in the Internationalist Commune of Rojava published a short documentary called "Afrin & Aleppo: Revolutionary People's War".
The Internationalist Young Women working and living in the Internationalist Commune of Rojava published a short documentary today: "Afrin & Aleppo: Revolutionary People's War".
The International Young Women said about the documentary: "In this documentary, the story of the heroic resistance in Afrîn and Aleppo is told by those who were on the front lines fighting with their people for the freedom of their people. The revolutionary People's War describes the strategy where all parts of society, all ages, genders and ethnicities become part of the resistance against colonialism, genocide and fascism. In Afrin and Aleppo, the sheer power that a united society unleashes in resistance was demonstrated.
When the population and its defense forces became one, they were able to withstand an invading army armed to the teeth. In Afrin, the army of the fascist Turkish state and its Islamist mercenaries were prevented from taking the region for 58 days. Despite air support and a huge arsenal of technical tools, the enemy forces failed to break the resistance. In Aleppo, Kurdish and Arab residents of the Şex Meqsûd neighborhood defended themselves against the regime as well as Islamist gangs and are still holding the ground today. Berxwedan Jiyane! - Resistance is life!"
The documentary was filmed recently and features interviews with inhabitants of the Berxwedan Camp in Shehba, the Youth movement of Tel-Rifaat & locals that were part of the defense in Afrin and Aleppo.
