Amargi (5000 years ago): first written word describing freedom – used some 5000 years ago in ancient Sumer, not far away from Rojava.
AMARGI.PL (from now on): International, self-organized network of civilian volunteers, providing help, expertise and community networking, remotely and „on the ground”, to facilitate reconstruction and redevelopment of Rojava in a sustainable and resilient way.
We run and coordinate direct support campaigns. Right now we are up to purchasing vaccines & sera for Afrin canton and testing secure internet communication with Rojava. Next campaigns are waiting in the queue.
We organize „Amargi1 House” in Thessaloniki. A center of coordination, meetings and training for bigger scale technical and educational support. Later we shall set up similar centers in various cities and countries.
We inform, inspire and integrate people in Europe and beyound, to support Rojava in a political, technical and financial way.
We rise money and gather people to support a post-war recovery of Rojava Autonomy2. Rojava is a self-administered territory in Syria, near the Turkish border, governed by local communities and their assemblies3. Victorious war with ISIS left most of the area destroyed4, full of landmines and booby-traps.
Our help is needed for the refugees to return home and rebuild the country rather than emigrating to Europe5. It will enlarge the only area in Syria which is peaceful, secular and safe for everyone.
