Protest against Pakistan Military's Tests in Occupied Balochistan

From: May
Sent on: Wednesday, May 26, 2010 10:19 AM
Good Morning CSI!

This is a reminder that the protest and press conference regarding Pakistan's military tests in Balochistan is this coming Friday. The details below now include the address of the National Press Club.

What: Protest against Pakistan military's tests in Occupied Balochistan and continued U.S. aid to Islamabad.

When: Friday, May 28, 2010 at 12 noon. The protest will begin in front of the White House at 12 noon, where a wide ray of speakers from different walks of life -- Baloch, Sindhis and Americans -- will address the protesters. A brownbag lunch and a press conference at 2 PM at the National Press Club will follow the protest.

Where: Protest is at the White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington DC 20050, near Farragut West & North metro stations. Press conference is at the National Press Club, Murrow Room,[masked]th Street, NW Washington DC 20045. Closest metro stop is Metro Center.

Why: Texas-sized Balochistan was not a part of Pakistan when the British created it in August 1947 but was illegally annexed by Pakistan on March 27, 1948. Fifty years later on May 27, 1998 Pakistan tested its deadly nuclear weapons in Balochistan. Over the years Pakistan has killed thousands of Baloch patriots yearning for independence, including former governor and chief minister of Balochistan Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti. More than a thousand remain missing. Today billions of dollars of U.S.taxpayers monies are being wasted on Pakistan military though the country is the biggest threat to the well-being and security of the U.S.

How: Protesters will gather in front of the White House, unfurl banners for stopping aid to Pakistan and demand independence for Balochistan.
