One of our comrades went to Minneapolis to get medical study rich and go to Rojava as a journalist, Slingshot press pass and everything, but ended up at the Sacred Stone Spirit Camp protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) instead!

But seriously, Rojava is still on our minds. Has anyone else on here thought about going?

No, but if you set me up with one of those passes, cameras, stipend and a fixer I can get a passport and figure out the rest like a big boy.

I've been dying to go, but it's totally ilegal for me to go to Iraq. Through Turkey is the only way and I heard its hard to get back through there.

They drink soju down there?
Do they have Kim Chee too?

Yeah, I can take pics of all of it and maybe keep my head through it all.

Does the state department have anything to say about it?

Rojava is now half of Syria's GDP. Turkey and the Kurds will be coming head to head soon as ISIS loses ground... and we'll see what happens then... I've thought about going but ultimately I'd be completely useless there. What they're really going to need now is soldiers, I think.

But if only journalists are being let in through Turkey, it's a good excuse to go. From what I understand it's totally illegal for journalists to fight in wars, hence the protections we allegedly have... sort of like medics. And if I had that skill set beyond some pretty basic first aid I'd be thinking more along those lines for sure!

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount

Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $105.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
