I'm in solidarity with the kurdish people but it seems to me that the ambiguity about Rojava has been at this point removed and it has come to be clearly just a representative democracy(sadly the directly democratic councils seem to have become warped into the british equivalent of local council bodies of government)- better than what existed before in that area but still another fucking state with a good propaganda machine.

A Letter to ‘Rojavist’ Friend


"Article 7[edit]

This contract is not looking to build a new state, or the construction of a class society, but based democratic Altmoss and the strength of the community and curtail the role of the state and turn it into a coordinating device"


It does appear to have Communes though weirdly enough

"Article 57[edit]

Communes:
  1. Are the basic form of grassroots organization of direct democracy. It is the decision-making and management system within the scope of administrative and organizational. Alkmon works as a board stand-alone in all stages of decision-making."



    " Democratic Confederalism therefore is a model of dual power, in which a situation is created that makes it possible for self-administered, municipal areas to coexist next to the nation-state."


    I think Ocalan took out the worst least anarchist parts of Bookchin.
