Rojava is an autonomous territory claimed by Kurdish forces in Northern Syria. They have held this area since 2012, fighting against ISIS and the Syrian regime. About 4.5 million people reside in Rojava, and it is organized in a system of democratic confederalism. The three main principles are ecology, feminism, and democracy.
-Tuesday, Jan. 29th, 7:30pm: Mouthguard Reading with Sadie Dupuis and Others
Cactus Bloom Collective presents...
*Sadie Dupuis reading from Mouthguard Dupuis (from the band Speedy Ortiz) is releasing a book of poetry called Mouthguard "The poems in Sadie Dupuis' Mouthguard are a means of developing a deep personal mythology; to read them is to feel what self-discovery is, and then recognize it in the rearview mirror, disappearing over the broken American horizon. They emerge from the place where known experience and the unknown collide; a borderline we all cross on the way to becoming ourselves." http://gramma.press/bookshop/mouthguard/?fbclid=IwAR0qqD8wSO1T9sY3gUiayXlbBHqU1OOu_kqae5jd6vLMmxhqkMa9xzhy798
