Tevgera Ciwanên Şoreşger ê Sûriyê
As autonomous representation of the youth inside the society the Revolutionary Youth Movement of Syria takes its place in every branch of the Autonomous Administration. It does so by organizing commities for the different works like education, culture economy, diplomacy and many more. The main goal of Tevgera Ciwanên Şoreşger ê Sûriyê is to organize the youth and make the new generation of Syria grow up with a political and ethical conscience.
Kongreya STAR is a democratic confederation that struggles for womens freedom and the right for equality in North and East Syria. It is based on the strategy of the democratic nation, transcending centralization and achieving justice, freedom and equality for women and different peoples. It takes the ideology and perspectice of women as the basis for solving social issues and problems.
Internationalist Youth Commune of Rojava
As internationalists from different parts of the world, the members of the Internationalist Commune of Rojava have been working in different structures of the revolution in Rojava and Northern Syria for many years. Though coming from different political backgrounds, the Kurdish movement united and inspired them with a new revolutionary perspective going far beyond the Middle East. To achieve these goals they work based on three principles
‘Learn, Support, Organize’.
Civil Diplomacy Center
We consolidate and create new understandings between the peoples of NES and the outside world, on the basis of humanitarian values, democracy, women’s freedom, and the freedom of religion and belief. We work from the basis of the diverse cultures of NES, including its Kurdish, Arabic, Christian and Yezidi heritage; its autonomous and diverse regions and municipalities; and its burgeoning civil-society movements, in particular its women’s movement. We enable the citizens of the world to engage fully with the ‘Rojava revolution’ and ‘women’s revolution’, through bilateral educational, solidarity and outreach programs.In this way we contribute to the global resistance against dictatorial oppression and the war against indigenous cultures, women, and society. We establish bilateral projects and mutual aid in order to spread peace, democracy and a communal way of life in NES and beyond.
