If Turkey occupies Northern Syria, the social progress made in the region, including advances in women’s liberation and popular self-government, would be destroyed. We have already seen Turkey and the Islamist militias it backs reverse these gains in Afrin.
This is notwithstanding criticisms of the ways in which the Kurdish PYD-YPG has suppressed other political groups among Syrian Kurds, making seemingly limited attempts at meaningful power-sharing in Arab-majority territory under its control, and its record of collaboration with both US and Russian military imperialism in Syria.
