Students' Movement Meeting about future of education system in NE Syria

Hundreds of students attended the Students' Meeting to discuss and propose solutions to the educational system.

Hundreds of students from different regions attended the Students' Movement Meeting of Northeast Syrian schools to discuss and propose solutions to the educational system and their own organizations.

The Internationalist Commune of Rojava compiled a short video in which the students speak about their role in society and the need to be organized.

Mazlum Kobanê, General Commander of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), joined the conference to share perspectives and listen to the evaluations and criticism of the students.

He said: "It's not about war, it's about building a society. We were students too. Until 2013, we wore civilian clothes, but after the attacks against us started we had to put on military clothes, and until today we couldn't take them off."

The debate was good and several interesting proposals were made. The conference brought many ideas and perspectives on building an education system that respects all cultures and realities, serving as an example of radical democracy and youth participation in deciding their own future.
