Protests are being held in Indian-occupied Kashmir to mark the day. The region has been under a brutal siege for almost a year, after India scrapped its special status on 5th August, 2019 and imposed a communications and media blackout. The call for the strike has been given by the veteran Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Gilani, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference and Mirwaiz-led Hurriyat forum to reiterate the urgent need for a peaceful and just resolution of the Kashmir dispute and to put an end to repression against the Kashmiri people and Hurriyat leaders.
