Rojava in Kurdish, Aramaic, and Arabic

Rojava
Rojava in Kurdish, Aramaic, and Arabic.

Territories claimed by Rojava (Kurdish: Rojavaya Kurdistanê “Western Kurdistan”)

Rojava is burgeoning democracy born out of the Syrian Civil War. Since declaring autonomy in 2013, it’s seen a radical social revolution based on principles of direct democracy, women’s liberation, religious freedom, ethnic equality, restorative justice, and environmental sustainability. Given the oppressive forces which the Rojava resistance battles – Daesh (ISIL) and the government of Bashar al-Assad – Rojava is a rare light in the Syrian Civil War.
