The Rojava Revolution, founded on the pillars of autonomy, ecological sustainability, and gender equality, began in 2012 during the onset of the Syrian Civil War. The Syrian dictator Assad was forced to pull his troops out of of Northern Syria to combat rebel groups in other parts of the country, which left a power vacuum in the region. Kurdish people and others capitalized to build a democratic, anti-capitalist society.

The YPG (people's protection units) and the YPJ (women's protection units) of Rojava have been recognized as the most effective forces against ISIS. US troops are also in the region fighting ISIS.

In mid-December Trump suddenly announced a withdrawal of US troops from Syria. The withdrawal could allow Turkey's fascist prime minister Erdogan, who has said that he wants to «bury Kurds in ditches», to expand his genocidal attack on the Kurdish people. Many Rojavans have been, of course, distrusting of the US military & knew a betrayal was on the horizon, but have relied on the US military as a buffer against an attack by the Turkish State (NATOs second largest army).

Rojavans need more support and funds in order to defend themselves from Turkish attacks. Additionally, they need funds to support those who were displaced from Efrin, a city in Rojava that was captured by Turkey in March 2018.
