The Indian Kashmir valley, the most militarized zone with 700,000 Indian troops has been witnessing massive protests similar to the Palestinian first intifada with youth throwing stones, countered by the Indian police force the past 3 months. 90 people have died.
Join us for a presentation on the history of the conflict, human rights violations, current situation and its global impact.
