*Ozgur Amed* is a journalist, columnist, teacher, and activist from
Diyarbakir in south-eastern Turkey. He spoke to *Dylan Murphy*, in
conjunction with Rojava Report <https://rojavareport.wordpress.com/>, about
the democratic revolution underway in predominantly Kurdish Rojava in the
Syrian state ― opposing both the Assad regime and fanatical Islamic State

Despite sustained attacks by IS on Kobane in Rojava, resistance fighters
liberated most of the city ― and Rojava's fascinating and inspiring
experiments in direct democracy live on.

original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made,
through disobedience and through rebellion.” — Oscar Wilde, Soul of Man
