Black Ribbon Days

As far as I can tell, all Kashmiri political parties are against the SASB land-grab. I fell that all these parties who feel that the land transfer in favour of the SASB is yet another instance of injustice being imposed upon the Kashmiri people by robbing them of their lands should protest till the perpetrators reverse thier decision. However, in my opinion the hartals and close downs are of little or no use and is not a clear indicator of the population's anger and disagreement of government policies.

I suggest that instead there be "Black Ribbon Days", where people can either wear a black ribbon anywhere (on their wrists, bags, hats, belts etc) they can even have one on their vehicle antennas or even black flags on their homes to show their displeasure with the government.

Consider what a strong indicator this will be when almost everyone will participate in this peaceful way of protest.
