It’s been peevishly mentioned by more than one nationalist that people like me have a lot of nerve denouncing the Indian occupation of Kashmir when the US government is involved in so many monstrous wars.

The difference between us & those nationalists is that we don’t identify with the crimes of our government but actively denounce & oppose them. Just as we denounce war, colonialism, & occupation wherever it is because we are guided by an ethos that says “an injury to one is an injury to all.”

Call us meddlers if you like but don’t bother complaining on this wall. We consider nation-states no impediment to solidarity.
