More than ten million people in Kashmir are being denied their right to self determination.
The Indian Government must restore full basic human rights in
Kashmir, including freedom of speech and communication. They must also lift
curfews and restrictions placed on political leaders, end arbitrary detentions
and disappearances, allow humanitarian organisations to resume their work, and
reverse the decision to drastically reduce the autonomy of Kashmir.
Please join me for this important community forum calling on the Australian Government to urgently raise its voice where we will hear from eminent speakers.
The Greens and I have urged the Australian government to speak
out and call on the Indian government to withdraw their troops, to end this
mass lockdown and to respect the human rights of the people of Kashmir and
their right to self-determination.
Speakers will include Joel Clark, Amnesty International; Shafaq Jaffery, Community Activist; and Khizar Niazi, former Ambassador.
Please spare 2 hours from your busy schedule and join us on this important Community Forum on Kashmir, thank you.
Senator Mehreen Faruqi
