OCCUPATION, RESISTANCE, AND INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY IN KASHMIR AND PALESTINE

“In the summer and fall 2010, hundreds of Kashmiri youth took to the streets armed with only stones to resist the 63-year-long Indian military occupation of Kashmir in what became know as the “Kashmiri Intifada”–a nod to the Palestinian uprising against Israeli occupation and apartheid. A panel of Kashmiri and Palestinian speakers will examine the links between the Kashmir and Palestine conflicts, which are central to the geopolitics of South Asia and the Middle East. The panelists will also explore common challenges (including the formidable Zionist and Hinduvta forces and anti-terrorism industrial complex), effective movement-building strategies, and opportunities for trans-regional solidarity.”
