This is music for the women of Rojava.
Tracks of understanding and solidarity. Sounds in support of a continuous, relentless opposition to regional fascism and, at the same time to universal fascism, religious or secular.
Opposition carried through body and soul on behalf of us all.
Opposition that can make life, as a future of freedom and equality, available to all.
Opposition that we must keep alive before we can celebrate.
The many musicians who come together for the female:pressure awareness and solidarity campaign have donated their work, placing their imagination in the service of a daily revolt against women’s oppression and the suppression of life force as such by male, capitalist militarism and its death cult.
This compilation is a donation campaign. We call out to you to support the women of Rojava.
Sisters, comrades, you know you are needed. You are part of the struggle. You go about your daily routine, yet aware of the significance of Rojava as an alternative, as a possibility. You know things are fucked up. Help make them less so. Give a bit of your money for our campaign today for a collective tomorrow.
The donations will go DIRECTLY to the women of Rojava to build a women's village on location called The Village Project: weqfajinaazad.org/en/index.php/news/954-a-village-for-women
The 12 compilation tracks have been selected from the Open Call for Submissions from 19th Dec 2015 to 19th Feb 2016. A larger selection of submissions is available on the female:pressure soundcloud playlist. soundcloud.com/femalepressure/sets/rojava-female-pressure
