Philadelphians rally in solidarity with Kashmir

Dozens of supporters rallied in solidarity with Kashmir at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia Aug. 17. The action was called by the Philadelphia South Asian Collective and was attended by a broad multinational, multigenerational crowd that protested the invasion of Kashmir by India’s racist Hindu nationalist government. The action was followed the next day by a banner drop, which disrupted a “Festival of India” event to bring attention to the military incursion. From Kashmir to Palestine, occupation is a crime!
