7) Four ways you can support the Co-operative struggle in Rojava

1) Pass motions in your co-operative, large or small, to fund the reconstruction of Kobane. Because of the turkish embargo on funds and supplies from conventional aid organisations it is crucial that support is recieved from the grassroots http://www.heyvasor.com/en/alikari/
2) Support the co-op delegation – in your co-op or organisation discuss how you could support co-operatives in rojava, perhaps by sending solidarity or educational supplies or working out potential economic partnerships (Afrin canton has many olive oil co-operatives for instance).
3) Get to know the local Kurdish community and work out what pratical support they need to help their organising. In some cities left wing groups are also supporting these communities in organising and are open to more participation.

4) Break The Silence! on the 6th of March at 12pm in London there is a national demonstration against Turkey’s war on the Kurds Called by Kurdish National Congress, Peace in Kurdistan & London Kurdish Solidarity: stopwaronkurds.org
