Three years since August 5, 2019
Today marks three years since the Kashmiri people lost their limited autonomous status. On August 5, 2019, the president of India arbitrarily revoked Article 370 and 35A of the Indian constitution and suspended the Jammu and Kashmir constitution.
The Canadian government and media, as is the case across the international community, remain silent about India’s deliberate, rapid, draconian settler colonization.
