(en) CNT, Rojava Azadî I, The 'Brigada 19 de Julio' delivers the flag of the Council of Aragon to the diplomatic representative of Makhmur. (ca, it, pt) [machine translation]

On August 10, 2018, 81 years of the dissolution of the Council of Aragon were completed. A day before this date, and after having previously participated in the human shield campaign "Serî Hilde" in Qandil and in the commemoration of the Yazidi genocide on August 3 in the refugee camp of Chemishko, a representation of the Brigada 19 de Julio with the intention of soaking up and getting to know closely the operation of this camp of Kurdish refugees that for twenty years has been ruled by the principles of Democratic Confederalism. ---- Among the revolutionary processes that took place after the fascist coup in Spain in 36 and the revolution that is taking place in Kurdistan (mainly in northern Syria), there is a clear temporal and longitudinal distance, but There are many points in common between both processes, being these pioneers, each in his time and space, in implementing new forms of democracy and new ways of managing resources, where women had and have a leading role.

The Regional Council of Defense of Aragon was a body founded on October 6, 1936 within the framework of the revolution that took place after the start of the Spanish Civil War. This autonomous entity was composed of representatives of various organizations and parties of different political tendencies, but the majority influence was of the anarchist organization CNT, which occupied seven of the fourteen positions of the Council. This fact has made many people talk about the Council of Aragon as the first anarchist "State" in history. Obviating this oxymoron, the truth is that it was a management body that governed the lives of thousands of people of rural Aragon through the establishment of Libertarian Communism, creating a network of agricultural collectives and starting various projects in infrastructure,

Volunteers from different parts of the world came to the defense of this revolutionary project, as happens today in Rojava, where many internationalist comrades are coming to support the revolution of the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria.

On August 15, the 34th anniversary of the beginning of the armed struggle against the Turkish State by the Kurdistan Liberation Movement was held in Makhmur. Taking advantage of this festive date and the stay of the July 19 Brigade in Makhmur, the flag of the Council of Aragon was handed over to the diplomatic representative of Makhmur, understanding this gesture as a way to share struggles and history and to build bridges with the revolution that is taking place in Kurdistan.
