This morning I awoke to find that Adam Curtis, the great British documentary filmmaker, has traced the parallel lives of Murray Bookchin and Abdullah Öcalan, and in the process helped explain both of them to the wider word. It’s published on his BBC blogpost here. Curtis has clearly studied my article on the subject from 2012, which was published here. Let’s hope that his article helps free Öcalan from his island prison, helps remember the “forgotten revolutionary” Bookchin. Let’s hope further that it illuminates the mentality of the Kurdish freedom struggle today. Viva Kobane!
