The Democratic Revolution in Rojava, Syria with Chris Shaw

Chris Shaw: Does the road to a Just Society run through Rojava on the northern edge of Syria?

The civil war in Syria has been grinding on since 2011 with almost 400,000 dead to date and no end in sight. A United Nations estimate puts the total dead and wounded at 11.5 percent of a population that was 22 million before the war. Almost 45 percent of the population has been displaced by the fighting, with millions of these refugees in other countries. The ghastly rise of ISIS has made the circumstances vastly worse in the areas under their control: harsh Sharia law, gruesome public executions, genocidal attacks on minority communities, sex slavery inflicted on captured women, the murder of gays, and the wanton destruction of historical artifacts.
