At least 4,000 were arrested just in the first 13 days of the military onslaught, held under the Public Safety Act which allows imprisonment up to two years without charge or trial. Most have been flown out of Kashmir to prisons in India & none have been identified by name or where they are imprisoned.

India is out to mercilessly crush the resistance in Kashmir with the assistance of Israeli, Russian, French, & US arms. Protests demanding India’s immediate, unconditional withdrawal & the immediate release of all political prisoners must continue or one of the most important freedom struggles of our time will be set back & the scorched earth model of genocide (used against Kashmiris, Palestinians, Rohingya, Uyghur, Syrians) will become the model for all humanity struggling against tyranny.
