Most of what I know is now a few years old. I'm curious how things have held up over there. I've been reading a bit about their structures and am interested to know how well they have held up over time, what appears to have worked and what has not.

I have a couple of friends who went to Rojava for anything between one and three years, to fight with them.

They all returned disilussioned, and will most likely not return.

War is a fuck.

I would appreciate any content to their disillusionment, if you are able.

I think I'd get too close to compromising their opsec by providing details.

In general terms, Rojava was not the hopeful and inspired project of equity that they imagined it to be.

Just being a prick here, but I can't help to imagine that many of the international batallion people and all the other "westerners" that went to help the revolution engaged in a colonizatory way towards the Kurds. Not in a bad way or being conscious about it, just putting an already set of ideas from a different context and trying to fit it to that context. The same thing happened to the Spanish Revolution I guess.

This is like hitting a crossroad, we are really sure that we want to insist on this hopes of revolution? Or we should search for alternatives?
