Demand that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation withdraw the Global Goalkeeper Award being given to Indian Prime minister Modi

7 million people are currently under seige in Kashmir, cutoff from the rest of the world, with their leaders in prison, 4,000 political prisoners air lifted to different prisons in India. An immense humanitarian crises is unfolding in Kashmir. Prime Minister Modi is enacting a dangerous, nationalistic agenda to colonize a people that have been living under India’s occupation and whose communities have been terrorized and stripped of their human rights. I do not see how a person with his background could qualify for a the Global Goalkeeper Award, when 7 million people of Kashmir are living in prison like conditions. To award a person who has,been named "butcher of Gujarat" would violate the very principle, "that all lives have equal values", that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is based on. Modi's recent annexation of Kashmir has put Kashmiri lives in danger. We ask the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to withdraw the award and stand up for what is right. 

You can make a change adding your voice to stop a facist and violator of human rights being awarded a civilian honor by an organization that champions human rights.
