Protest to support Kashmir

As Netanyahu campaigns for re-election, he is displaying a huge poster of himself shaking hands with Modi of India. The parallels between Israel’s occupation of Palestine and India’s occupation of Kashmir are huge. Both leaders use ethnic nationalism to promote their own popularity. They both ignore the wishes of the UN. Netanyahu of Israel refuses to let Palestinians return. Modi of India refuses to let the people of Kashmir decide their own future in a referendum. Both leaders are using military power to inflict a violent occupation on a largely powerless people.
Modi has just abolished article 370, which gave Kashmir a small degree of autonomy. He has increased size of the occupying army and arrested 800 Kashmiris. There is a demonstration against the occupation of Kashmir next Saturday, 31st August at 12.30pm in the Peace Gardens. Come, join this demonstration in support of self-determination and against sectarian oppression.
