Note: The YPG recruits volunteers through attraction to the cause and does not in any shape of form attempt to indoctrinate or “groom” people to travel to Rojava to join our cause. We are not like Daesh [ISIS]. The Lions of Rojava clearly explains to each individual the reality of the conflict in Rojava, the risks of travelling to the region and the expectations of the YPG. The safety of all volunteers is paramount. We always encourage the thousands of young westerners who have approached us to consider other ways to help the Kurdish and Ezidi people in the struggle against Daesh such as donating to charity or volunteering with humanitarian groups.
The YPG is not a militant militia, we are a Peoples Protection Unit that is organized under democratic, secular, gender equal and ecological principles that has formed in the absence of a functional government in Syria and the presence of a barbaric extremist Islamist threat. Our goal is to liberate all people from the tyranny and evil of Daesh and to construct a free and stable and democratic country.
