In 2017, 25-year-old Anna Campbell from Lewes in East Sussex travelled in secret to Northern Syria. She was heading for Rojava, the Kurdish territory in the north of the country. In the midst of the civil war in Syria, a fledgling feminist democracy had been established but almost immediately came under threat from the so-called Islamic State. Just eight months after arriving and with no military background, Anna went to the front line to fight with Kurdish YPJ. A month later she was killed by a Turkish air strike.

He had traveled to northern Syria in September 2017 to join the Kurdish resistance that, at that time, was fighting against the last Islamic State (Daesh) jihadists in the city of Raqqa, considered for several years as the administrative capital of the Islamist group in Syria after the fall of Mosul in Iraq.
On Monday March 18th, anarchist Lorenzo (Orso) Orsetti, nom de guerre Tekoşer Piling, fell while fighting in Baghouz, as a member of the unit Tekoşîna Anarşîst (Anarchist Struggle). He fought in Afrin and Deir Ezzor, and helped build the only anarchist unit in Rojava.
