Spectacular victories in Rojava for the growing SDF revolutionary democratic coalition with three separate offensives.
The last and biggest ISIS base north of Raqqa in Tal as-Salam has been totally taken over, completing the 1st phase of the campaign in record time. Now SDF plan to encircle the ISIS capital and are convening a new multi ethnic, multi religion Raqqa Council to run it, ( as worked so well in Manbij which also is not a Kurdish city) if it can be conquered..

We decided to occupy one of the many abandoned buildings in the city of Florence to make a place for socializing and sharing, to organize debates, presentations and concerts, to make room for those of us who need a place to be and do activities, to address the social disintegration and lack of opportunity that this city offers us
Florence is run by political powers and local councils for profit and is increasingly distant from the needs of the inhabitants. It is now the practice to sell everything: the health of citizens, the right to exist of migrants and refugees of war, the dignity of those who have no home, the right to education, the lives of many working men and women.
The demagogic schemes of the government continue to mystify reality; spreading the culture of resignation, of individualism and conformity, as well as denying the possibility of a social transformation and the creation of a different world.
JINHA News Offices have been closed down and sealed this morning by the police of the conservative Islamist regime of R. T. Erdogan. The news agency offered written and audiovisual content about women in general and globally.
Its closure is a victory for machismo that wants women invisible, his voice and his worldview. The last few remaining Kurdish media including Women only news agency JINHA & DIHA, Azadiya Welat were closed with new statutory decrees in Turkey.
With JINHA, the Turkish government has closed a dozen newspapers, publications and six Kurdish news agency Dihao.
Erdogan succeeded in his coup of July 15, and now closes the media.
Not only that, yesterday 1,267 more Turkish academic teaching staff were sacked. And, as always, a huge silence, bitter and infinite, from world public opinion, and especially its institutions. This is impunity.
JINHA News ha quedat precintada aquest matí. Ahir fou clausurada pel règim islamista conservador de R. T. Erdogan. L’agència de notícies oferia continguts escrits i audiovisuals sobre aspecte de les dones en general i a nivell mundial. El seu tancament suposa una victòria del masclisme que vol invisibilitzar les dones, la seva veu i la seva visió del món. La seu a Amed ha quedat tancada.
BREAKING: Turkish government shuts pro-Kurdish/opposition 10 newspapers, 3 magazines & major Kurdish agencies #DİHA/#JİNHA under decree-law
Amb JINHA,el govern turc ha clausurat una desena de diaris, sis publicacions i l’agència de notícies kurda DIHA. Quan triomfa un cop d’estat, el més habitual és que els colpistes tanquin mitjans de comunicació no afins. Erdogan va triomfar en el seu cop d’estat del 15 de juliol, un auto cop, i ara tanca mitjans.
info from AL-BAB (Kurdish daily News) – Since Oct 22 Turkey’s Air Forces are blocked from continuing their aerial campaigns in Syria as part of their Euphrates Shield operation, as Syria has activated its S-200 (and possibly S-300) air defense systems against the bombing by Turkish warplanes in Syrian airspace.
