PUNKS FOR ROJAVA – Solidarity is a weapon!

Handstand Records is proud to add our name to the list of DIY punk labels from around the world who are donating proceeds to humanitarian aid organization Cadus and the Jinwar Free Woman’s Village. ✊ #punksforrojava

Rojava is an autonomous region in northeastern Syria practicing libertarian socialist federated semi-direct democracy. The revolution in Rojava was founded on principles of anticapitalism, decentralization, Kurdish self-governance, and gender equality. This women-led collective is at the heart of the fight with ISIS, but has been abandoned by Donald Trump’s bullshit foreign policy.

This women-led collective is at the heart of the fight with ISIS, but has been abandoned by Donald Trump’s bullshit foreign policy.The current level of brutality in the world is shocking and leaves us speechless. As incomprehensible as it all may be, we cannot let ourselves fall into a state of shock. We need to transform our speechlessness into cries of protest. It is time to give voice to our rage and fight the conditions in the world that are making us sick and leaving others dead. It is time to take a stand! We cannot lose our solidarity in this cold world because it is our weapon in the fight for a humane existence.

It is time to take a stand! We cannot lose our solidarity in this cold world because it is our weapon in the fight for a humane existence.

In order to help break the silence and to show solidarity with the people and the revolution in Rojava, we – a collective of DIY Record Labels from all over the world – will be donating 25% of our proceeds in the coming week to the humanitarian aid organization Cadus and the Jinwar Free Woman’s Village. Because ours is a collective struggle.

Donate, get active and take part in demonstrations and protests. The fascist aggression of the Turkish army is also an attack upon us and our ideals. It may seem small, but it’s a start!
