There is increasing media coverage of the Kashmiri struggle against Indian military occupation. It’s not an avalanche nor certainly hard-hitting investigative reports but a trickle of the kind of dishonest, tripe coverage we’re accustomed to about Palestinians.
It’s isn’t a matter of something being better than nothing since half-assed reporting trivializes conflicts & tunes readers out to understanding them since there’s ‘no there there’ to the news. But the internet does make it possible for us to take a snatch of information or a photo & do our own investigations. Social media makes it possible to interrogate participants & confirm things.
It isn’t that we want to know about all the human suffering in the world but that knowing what’s happening to our brothers & sisters means we can build bonds of understanding, respect, & solidarity.
