Filed under: Solidarity, US
A call for actions in solidarity with various pro-Rojavan initiatives happening across the world.
OPERATION: WATERED SPROUT is joint call to action by Demand Utopia, The Internationalist Commune of Rojava and Symbiotic Horizon. We are calling on all utopians, anarchists, socialists, social ecologists and communalists to mobilize for a week of action in solidarity with Make Rojava Green Again, #EarthStrike and the communal demands of the Gilets Jaunes of Commercy on the second week of January.
Our aim is to raise awareness about the inter-linkages between the social and ecological crisis and raise consciousness that a new world is indeed possible. To save the earth, we need to #SaveTheHumans too! The utopian project of Rojava and the ideas of Democratic Confederalism and social ecology show us that even in the roughest of situations a new world can be constructed!
OUR OBJECTIVES ARE
Have visible protests, rallies, banner drops in solidarity with Earth Strike global day of action on Tuesday, January 15th. Agitate in our local areas around democratic confederalism and communalism as viable political alternatives and the connection between the social and ecological crisis. Build tangible support for the Make Rojava Green Again campaign. Connect with new people and plug them into ongoing local organizing in your area!

FROM SPROUT to BLOOM
We are not calling for a huge action to change the world all at once, nor do we expect everyone to take on bold and flashy actions. The intent of this operation is to water sprouts around the world that are just beginning to grow. Forming a local study group on revolutionary social-ecological organizing or reaching out to your neighbors for a potluck and discussion about fighting climate change may not sound as exciting as immediately attacking the system. But it is a necessary first step we have to be doing everywhere if we ever hope to overgrow the catastrophe we are confronted with.
Operation: 💦#WateredSprout🌱 will be💕 germinating 🍞early next month🌙. We're kicking off little actions 🏘around the 🌏globe in 🏴solidarity🚩with @CommuneInt and #earthstrike. Visit https://t.co/Y6IdxNEhxP for a list of 🌈suggested actions🔥 and resources to use!👽✌🏽🌻🛠 pic.twitter.com/xAzvQG4sv8
