NYC #StandWithKashmir on India’s Independence Day:
NYC'S KASHMIR PROTESTS: On India's Independence Day, protesters take to the streets in New York over the Indian government's decision to rescind the autonomy of Kashmir, a contested Muslim-majority region that India and Pakistan both claim (they've fought three wars over it since 1947). India has cut off Kashmir's internet and cell phone access, tear-gassed protesters, and arrested top political leaders. Pakistan has asked the U.S. to intervene, but Pres. Trump has yet to take a position as tensions rise between the two nuclear-armed nations.
