We call upon all concerned individuals and organizations to join us to PROTEST and CALL UPON the UN, which has a long association with the Kashmir issue, to press the Indian government to:

*End its militarized governance of Kashmir, and withdraw army into barracks

*Revoke the draconian Armed Forces Special Power Act (AFSPA), which gives Indian troops in Kashmir immunity from civil legal action, and promotes HR violations

*End oppression of Kashmiri people, release political prisoners and young boys from jails, and lift the overbearing security apparatus from Kashmir

*Initiate meaningful process to democratically resolve the issue, and include Kashmiris as the primary party to such a process
