India: Rally against the Oppression of the Kashmiri People


Report (with Pictures and Videos) from a Rally in Vienna on 5 August 2020, Austrian Section of the RCIT, and




About 100 migrants from Pakistan and Kashmir held a rally in the center of Vienna (Austria) to demonstrate against the oppression of the Kashmiri people. The rally took place on the first anniversary of the abolition of Kashmir’s constitutional autonomy by the Hindutva-chauvinist Modi government. It was organized by the Pakistani Community Forum in Austria – a federation of numerous migrant NGO’s.


The rally was addressed by a number of representatives of the migrant community. Our comrade Michael Pröbsting, International Secretary of the RCIT, was asked to give two speeches (one in German, the other in English). He stated our support for the Kashmiri people who face brutal repression since decades by the Indian army. He also called for an international solidarity movement with the liberation struggle of the Kashmiri people.



Our articles, pamphlets and statement on Kashmir are collected at a special sub-page on he RCIT’s website:
