The Baloch Students’ Organisation has announced the release of student leader Jiand Baloch. We thank all those individuals, activists and organisations who raised their voice in solidarity with Jiand Baloch and the BSO. It was your effort which saved a comrade’s life. Thus, instead of destroying the BSO, state repression has only managed to popularise it.
The state of Jammu and Kashmir has been stripped of its status of limited autonomy within India. dividing the state into two union territories: firstly Jammu and Kashmir, and secondly Ladakh. The Modi government wants to promote war hysteria so that on the one hand, all resistance and dissent can be crushed in the name of ‘enmity to India’. On the other hand, such policies are aimed at providing Indian capital opportunities to loot and plunder Kashmir.
