Even now, after all the educational work Kashmiri activists have done on social media, most media coverage still refers to Kashmir as a “disputed territory” between the two nuclear powers of India & Pakistan, as if the Kashmiri struggle against occupation & colonialism did not exist. But such coverage cannot undo the work & the solidarity Kashmiris have built. The news blackouts & the lies don’t work anymore. The Kashmiri struggle is now recognized as one of the most important freedom struggles in the world.

End the occupation. Self-determination for Kashmir.
