From the cover: On April 1 st 2017 the International Revolutionary People’s Guerilla  Forces (IRPGF) announced their formation as an anarchist combat unit fighting with the International Freedom Brigades in Rojava. Four months later, the group announced a queer anarchist contingent, The Queer Insurrection and Liberation  Army (TQILA), in response to the systematic persecution of LGBT people by Daesh and the capitalising of queer culture in the west.

The group has kept a high media profile since their announcement, and have issued multiple statements regarding their position in the conflict, issues of international solidarity, the rise of fascism in Europe and United States, and the role of revolutionary anarchism in combating fascism.

This pamphlet collects all text statements released by the IRPGF and TQILA between their formation in April 2017 and the announcement of TQILA in August 2017.
