As April is one of the last months before the summer, we were focusing on the work at the site of our academy. We were continuing to work on our park of the internationalist martyrs and planted trees in another segment of the academy site. In that area we were mixing olive, pomegranate, grapefruit, almond, plum and mulberry trees. In other different places we continued with planting vegetables and small bushes.
A major project for the next month will be the installation of an irrigation system which will require some major changes in our water system. For this we made the first plans and took measurements of our academy.
April was also a very busy month for Make Rojava Green Again in Europe. An Europe-wide meeting was held in Geneva with many new people and ideas. Also in April we managed to finish the work on the Swedish and French version of the book Make Rojava Green Again. French is already available and Swedish will be available soon.
A topic at the meeting in Geneva was also the increasing repression against Make Rojava Green Again. Anne from Copenhagen, Denmark had her passport seized when she was about to leave to join our works here. About this we also wrote a statement.
We will in the next week focus on planting more trees and getting the new irrigation system in operation for the summer.
