#NoFlyZone4Rojava: Twitter Responds to Turkey’s Aggression Against Rojava

Organizers from across nations and language are taking aim at the latest atrocities of Turkish State against the people of Rojava throughout social media. The YPG suffered 20 fatalities by Turkish airstrikes as they fight Daesh, though the number may be apt to increase.

As of Wednesday morning, organizers on Twitter have collaborated in spreading the hastag #NoFlyZone4Rojava, in an attempt to pressure governments to halt further Turkish action on the YPG.

The reasons for attacking the YPG are multiple. With an overwhelmingly realist and neoliberal perspectives, the Turkish state is attempting to suppress Rojava as fear for examples of Kurdish autonomy might inspire for Turkish Kurds. It also aligns with their economic and political enmeshment with Daesh. With a similar ideology based on hegemonic control, Turkish cooperation with Daesh is well known.
