KAWA was a violent, anti-Soviet, Maoist Kurdish party in southeastern Turkey during the 1970s and 1980s that for a few years seemed to rival the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) for notoriety and violence. It was named after a legendary Kurdish folk hero who rebelled against a tyrant during the time of the ancient Persian Empire and is also associated with the Kurdish New Year's holiday Newroz.
   KAWA was established in 1976 but split two years later over arguments concerning China's "Three World" theory. The party ceased to exist after the Turkish military coup of 1980.
