Rojava, Palestine, Chiapas - all of these are household names among leftists as beacons of struggle against oppression by the dispossessed of the world. Though frameworks like “anti-imperialism” and “anti-colonialism” may be more prevalent among socialists, these and other struggles have continued to attract the interest and support of anarchists in Europe, the US and elsewhere as well.
