ROJAVA female:pressure

female:pressure is launching an awareness and solidarity campaign for the cantons of Rojava (located in northern Syria), where women participate on all levels of decision making and building a new society from scratch, with built-in social, racial and ethnic justice, religious freedom, ecological principles and gender equality.

With a series of music, media and sound art to listen, dance and fight to, we would like to send our love and strength to these women and spread a positive message in support of their efforts.

From the liner notes of "Women & The Gun":
"In the revolution of Rojava, a practical defense of women's rights and the safety of women is ensured through the YPJ (People's Protection Units). The Daesh (or I.S. for Islamic State) has from the very beginning of this war addressed its attacks on regions where Kurds mainly live, such as Schengal, Mosul, Raka, Heseke, Serekani, Kobani and Aleppo. Kurdish women, on the other hand, have taken on a leadership role in the defense against these attacks. With their identity as women of many ethnicities, the women have been present in all areas of the fight in Rojava. Women have also jointly begun a revolution socially and politically in Syria and Rojava and expand this more every day.

"To understand the revolution in Rojava and the role of women in it, one has to be aware of the history of Kurdish movement and especially of the role of PPK (Kurdistan Workers' Party) in Kurdistan. What's happening there is based on more than 30 years of ideological work in both theoretical and practical aspects. Apart from a justified, self organized, armed struggle of women in Kurdistan against colonizing, oppressive regimes in this area (Iran, Turkey, Iraq and Syria), they have also done the same political work on a societal level to create awareness of the importance of the women's role in the revolutionary discourse.

"Rojava is a chance for the whole world, especially for women and white feminism, to finally understand that the fight for women is nothing else than the struggle for revolution and justice, and the women there are a role model for us. They are building a society where women even write their revolutionary history, a history that until now has ignored the power of women. They have their destiny in their hand. Let us look to Rojava for getting hope for our lost world, and energy to continue our fight for a better life."

non "user" online

Maybe that's an inside joke or something, but I think it would be nice if these good folks were called "miracles" instead of users. Peace .

Great selection to signify the sustained significance of the music even as time rolls by - and one of my favorite songs; but, let's breathe some life into that studio rendition with a bit of stage presence ... not only is the Swing a consensus nomination for best show during a banner year, but it gives us this magnificent sandwich with a remarkable rendition of Wheel as the meat (or Tofurkey) in the middle:

(for the time-challenged or attention-deficient, just forward to 14:00 to gain some idea of the PITB outro jam from which Wheel is spawned at about 14:30, then give it to 22:00 when the band wanders back into Playin')/k
