The children of Kashmiri Intifada

Kashmiri Intifada Feb 13 2017

Kashmiri Intifada:

You see this same kind of image of Palestinian children against Israeli soldiers. In Belfast in 1983, I saw many small boys taking rocks after armored vehicles of the occupying British army.

Some living sheltered lives get on a high horse & shake the naughty finger: “where are the parents?” To stop children from resisting occupation you would have to keep them locked up. Something about a child that doesn’t like an occupation–especially when children are the targets of pellet guns (Kashmir) or bombers (Gaza).

The tragedy here is not that children resist oppression but that the Indian government makes it necessary for them to do so & takes away their childhood in the process.

End the occupation. Self-determination for Kashmir.
