It has been one year since Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi made good on a long-standing electoral promise and announced the repeal of Article 370 from the Indian Constitution, doing away with some of the autonomies that had previously been granted to Indian-held Kashmir.

Combined with a near-total blackout of communications and the deployment of tens of thousands of troops to the region, Kashmir seemed primed for chaos. Many celebrities have taken to social media and demanded justice for the people in Kashmir. Actor Osman Khalid Butt simply retweeted a post by StandWithKashmir that featured a video of Black, Indigenous, Uighur, Palestinian, and Rohingyan voices extending their support to the people of Kashmir in their struggle for self-determination.
