Yesterday at the inaugural Rojava Freedom Conference, American philosopher and linguist Noam Chomsky said that Rojava is going through a difficult process and it is a miracle that it has survived so far. He called on world public opinion to support Rojava.
Noam Chomsky delivered the inaugural conference on the freedom of Rojava organized by the Department of Social Sciences of the University of Rojava. “The main problem is how the attacks carried out by the Turkish state with the approval of the US can be stopped. On the other hand, it is important to see what will happen against the approaches of the government in Damascus. All in all, it is a miracle that Rojava has survived so far. We understand from experience that international support is possible. "
Regarding the new US administration, Chomsky said Biden won't be much different from the previous administration, although he added, “I don't think Biden will be as brutal as Trump. I don't think he will approve of killing Kurds like Trump did. What is important is what civil society does, the support that can be built within civil society and the people, because that is what would influence the policies of the new administration.
If there is no pressure from the people, the United States will continue to protect the same system. Biden may be different from Trump. But we should not expect too much. That's why everyone should be pressuring Biden. "
Making recommendations to the Rojava administration, Chomsky said: “The first thing to do is to guarantee the rights of women. South Africa has been successful in the measures taken in this regard. This is your only hope. North and East Syria is a major asset. The value of the Rojava revolution must be seen all over the world. You will achieve your goals with the support of the people."
