Description

What would you do if the government collapsed? Over the last eight years, the men and women of North-East Syria have had a chance to answer that question for themselves. Using the political theories of an American anarchist and a Kurdish terrorist, they've built a feminist oasis in the middle of the world's most brutal war.

Mr. Evan's, I do so enjoy Behind the Bastards & it is through it that I know of your travel to & reporting on & in conflict, war-torn areas. I admire & appreciate your courage & willingness to cover & give voice to those who are too often ignored. Great work you're doing Sir.
