Baloch Yakjehti Committee to protest against genocide in over 20 cities of Balochistan

As Pakistan prepares for the upcoming Eid al Fitr, peaceful dissent can be noticed in Balochistan against the regular occurrences of enforced disappearances and other atrocities inflicted by Pakistan on the Baloch community. The Baloch Yakjehti Committee (BYC), an organisation involved in Baloch rights advocacy, recently reported.

In a recent post on 'X' the BYC announced that the fifth phase of the ongoing movement against the Baloch Genocide will be held across Balochistan on Eid.

"In the "fifth phase" of the ongoing movement against the Baloch Genocide by the Baloch Solidarity Committee, protests will be held across Balochistan on the day of Eid. The Baloch nation is currently facing serious crimes such as enforced disappearance, extrajudicial killings, forced evictions, economic sanctions and others," the committee said.

Moreover, they urged everyone to participate in this movement.

"While the entire Baloch society is suffering from forced disappearances. We request each and every member of the Baloch nation to play their full role in this movement against Baloch genocide," the BYC added.

Balochistan is also located partly in #Iran and #Afghanistan, but these protests seem to be mainly in #Pakistan.

Mahrang Baloch, the leader of the Baloch Solidarity Committee, in a virtual address from Islamabad, pleaded for humanitarian intervention against the Baloch genocide that has persisted for decades in Balochistan.

She highlighted the forced disappearances, extrajudicial killings, and forced displacement of thousands, emphasising the escalating intensity of the genocide.

She said that the movement began with a peaceful sit-in in Turbat, lasting 13 days, before transitioning into a peaceful long march covering hundreds of kilometres to reach the capital.

However, the state responded with extreme force throughout the mass movement, employing false FIRs, physical violence, and arrests against the activists.
