We have just confirmed through WhatsApp that Indian journalist Satyadeep Satya is still locked out of his Facebook account. No need to wonder why. They claim it’s to verify his identity but this is becoming their go-to alibi for blocking those who are outspoken against the occupation of Kashmir & supporters of Kashmiri self-determination.

Satyadeep posts eloquently & powerfully in defense of human rights around the world & almost daily about the occupation. His posts must enrage nationalists who already operate at high levels of simple-minded fury & hate–not to mention infuriating the professional staff India employs to monitor Indians & Kashmiris.

We’ll have a petition for Satyadeep up & running in just a trice which we hope will be widely signed & shared.
