Community forum on Kashmir

WHEN: 6.15pm for 6.30pm Wednesday 20 November

WHERE: Waratah Room, The Holroyd Centre, 17 Miller Street, Merrylands, NSW. The venue is accessible.


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.
