central area and pledged to continue their support to the people of Kashmir
struggling for right to self-determination.

widespread awareness movement on Kashmir’s issue titled ‘One Million Signature
Campaign’ in Barcelona city on Saturday. During the signature camp, a large

people of Kashmir during this move.

signature campaign, said, response of the people during the signature move in
Barcelona was very encouraging. He said, the Council has already organized
successful camps in connection with the signature campaign in the different EU
countries and a massive number of people showed their positive response in the
context.

based campaign was first launched in Belgium a few years ago and so far, a
large number the people in the different European countries have signed the
documents. Local NGOs and social activists in different European countries also
supported the motivation of move and held camps in the context in the host

order to highlight the conflict of Kashmir and pressurize New Delhi to stop the
human rights abuses perpetrated by the Indian forces in the Indian held Kashmir
