Internationalist Commune of Rojava
We, as internationalists from the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Europa, America and Oceania, have been working in different structures of the revolution in Rojava and Northern Syria for many years. Though we come from different political backgrounds, the Kurdish movement united and inspired us with a new revolutionary perspective going far beyond the Middle East.
In the beginning of 2017 we started to organize the Internationalist Commune of Rojava as a self-organized collective, working in coordination with the youth movement of Rojava (Cîwanên Şoreşger).
Until then, the internationalists working in Rojava were different people, from different countries, doing different things. But since that time we have been continuing with our works in a more organized way.

The Rojava Internationalist Commune was founded in 2017 by internationalists from all over the world, supported by the Rojava Youth Movement (YCR/YJC). The aim of this structure is to share knowledge, skills and experience through an internationalist perspective, as well as to support projects and the revolution in Rojava. The Commune also serves to facilitate the integration of foreign activists into society and one of the first steps was the construction of the first internationalist academy (named after British YPJ volunteer Şehid Helîn Qereçox). Since then, many internationalists have taken part in training courses in order to later join various works and projects with the civilian population of Rojava.
Built as a collective living project with an ecological focus, the Internationalist Commune also intends to be an academy to train internationalists and the people of Rojava in environmental awareness and practice. It serves as a kind of laboratory to build an ecological society.
Finally, the Internationalist Commune launched the “Make Rojava Green Again” campaign in cooperation with the ecological committee of the canton of Cizirê (one of the three regions of Rojava : Cizirê, Kobane and Afrin). The campaign aims to find solutions to the ecological problems facing the revolution, such as water scarcity, desertification and dependence on oil production.

We are a self-organized collective, working in coordination with the Youth Movement of Rojava.

Coming from different political backgrounds, the Kurdish Movement united and inspired us with a new revolutionary perspective going far beyond the Middle East.
In the beginning of 2017 we established the Internationalist Commune of Rojava as a self-organized and self-funded collective supported by the youth movement in Rojava (YCR/YJC). Our aim is organizing a new generation of internationalism to challenge capitalist modernity. Since then we have been coordinating educations, language trainings and delegations. One of our main activities is bringing in qualified volunteers and preparing them for their work in the structures in Rojava.
Currently we are building the first permanent nonmilitary academy for Internationalists. This academy will provide the basic education for Internationalists that want to learn, work and organize in the local structures. As part of the ecological paradigma we will also work in this academy in the communal effort to reforest Rojava.
