Protests continue in Kashmir

Protest in Maisuma part of Srinagar (Basit Zargar) Oct 16 2017

This could be Palestine; it could be Kashmir. Both struggles have distinguished themselves by fearless defiance against colonialism & occupation for now seventy years. Such intransigence is a marvel of the human spirit against oppression. But it isn’t what these young people want to do with their live energy. They have other things to do, poetry to write, songs to sing, children to love, places to see, freedom to breathe.

This is a protest in the Maisuma area of Srinagar. Stand with Kashmiris in demanding an end to the occupation & for self-determination.
