A Kashmiri student preparing to throw a tear gas canister back at the occupying army during protests today in Srinagar:

On the one hand, this toughness is remarkable, extraordinary. On the other, it’s a monstrous crime against the youth of Kashmir that they have to fight for their very existence & freedom against 700,000 troops armed to the teeth with a shoot to kill or permanently disable mentality.

End the occupation. Self-determination for Kashmir.
