Qaid: A Camp-in for Kashmir

In the spirit of other on-campus protests that have called attention to underrepresented issues through “teach-ins” and “sit-ins,” we present a “camp-in” to honor the incredible courage of the thousands of Kashmiris who were trapped for endless days and nights on rooftops awaiting rescue after the floods. This event is an incredible opportunity for all to learn about the historical, literary, and cultural traditions of the “highest battleground on earth.”
