Chris, since movements that are under some kind of siege need to build
alliances first and foremost among other people struggling (regardless of
whether there might still be a necessity to deal with the devil as you
describe), could you please send through any statements of solidarity by
the "Rojava revolutionaries" with the people being mass murdered in Idlib
and Hama for months on end now by the regime and Russian imperialism, with
literally dozens of hospitals and schools being bombed, at least 500 killed
and 100s of 1000s displaced. Thanks.
