Join Stand with Kashmir and Haymarket Books for a collaborative event series uplifting the work of artists and activists fighting for self-determination and abolition in the face of police brutality, militarism, and settler-colonialism. We will celebrate transnational and inter-movement resistance, exploring both the similarities between the different movements and the aspects that make each unique in its way. We will feature activists, artists and scholars from each movement to tell their story of resistance and resilience, and to strengthen solidarity across borders Participants: Ahmer is a prolific rapper and producer from Srinagar, Kashmir.
