Residents in the Jammu and Kashmir Union Territory of India and Azad Jammu and Kashmir region of Pakistan announced protests January 5th. Participants intend to demand independence for Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir. Support for gatherings in Jammu and Kashmir will likely be highest in the Kashmir Valley; protests are likely at government buildings, public squares, press clubs, and on major roadways. The largest gatherings are likely in major cities and towns. Participation at each event could range from the hundreds to the low thousands people.
Security personnel will likely monitor protests and may try to disperse especially disruptive gatherings. Clashes between protesters and police are possible. Protesters could block or march along roadways, causing localized transport disruptions. Indian authorities could impose heightened security measures, including suspending internet services and imposing curfews, in areas where violence breaks out.
