Kashmiri activists & supporters are calling on human rights supporters with Twitter accounts to participate in a twitter storm today to get the word out about the murderous siege going on involving indiscriminate killing.
This is my introduction to Twitter campaigning since I only opened it when I was locked out of FB & I can’t say it’s an entirely glorious experience. But it is useful for flooding news & building solidarity.
The internet is locked down in Kashmir so they won’t know that people around the world stand with them. Social media is breaking the news blackout. Kashmiris can no longer be allowed to stand alone.
The tweet hashtag being used is #freekashmir.
