Summary
In order to find a peaceful solution to the Kurdish question, the Kurdish Freedom Movement in Turkey have developed an alternative social model: Democratic Autonomy. In the fall of 2011, a group of TATORT activists journeyed into the Kurdish regions of Turkey to learn how the More...theory of Democratic Autonomy was being put into practice. They discovered a remarkable experiment in face-to-face democracy all the more notable for being carried out in wartime. Since 2005, under the most difficult of conditions, the movement in North Kurdistan has created structures for a democratic, ecological and gender-liberated society. At its core is a system of councils in villages, cities, and neighborhoods. These structures do not yet offer a way of life that is fully independent of the nation-state and the market economy, but they nonetheless reveal a potent civil counter-power. The interviews and documentation in this book provide thought provoking glimpses into the practical implementation of a new left vision. The radical democratic awakening of the Kurds may serve as an inspiration for social change in the Middle East and elsewhere.--
