What Turkey's war means for Kurds in Syria and fascists in Turkey.

Journalist Max Zirngast examines the dual purposes for Turkey's invasion of northeastern Syria - to crush the autonomous Kurdish opposition and unify Turkey's bourgeois class behind a war project in a country mired deep in deep economic stagnation and political crisis.

Max wrote the article Turkey’s War in Syria Is a War for Fascism with co-authors Alp Kayserilioğlu and Güney Işıkara for Jacobin.
