Brief editorial comment on struggle against ISIS
Do you think this could end with an independent democratic socialist Kurdistan before it's all over—with ISIS, Assad, the ayatollahs and the Shi'ite-supremacist US-backed regime in Baghdad all deafeated? Help make it so. ALL SOLIDARITY WITH THE KURDISH REVOLUTION!
