Kashmir

Issue No. 1884

AROUND 50 representatives of the Kashmiri solidarity organisation Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK met in Alum Rock, Birmingham, last week to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the UN resolution calling for a plebiscite so that the people of Kashmir can determine their own future.

The meeting was addressed by Salma Yaqoob and Ger Francis (in personal capacities) from Birmingham Stop the War Coalition, who emphasised the hypocrisy of Blair's claims that he has acted as a "calming influence" in the region while his government has fanned the flames of conflict.

The Blair government continues to sell weapons to both India and Pakistan.
