Vancouver: International Voice for Baloch Missing Persons and Baloch Human Rights Council (Canada) held a Balochistan Human Rights Awareness Day at the Simon Fraser University to inform the Canadian students and public about Pakistani and Iranian state atrocities against Baloch civilians.
Baloch students from Simon Fraser University actively participated in the one-day event by setting up information booths displaying photographs of enforced-disappeared Baloch youth and of the tortured, bullet-riddled bodies of Kill and Dump victims in Balochistan.
Canadian as well as foreign students from Israel, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and China took interest and enquired about the ongoing human rights violations in Balochistan. Participants were shocked to see the horrors of the large scale human rights abuses committed by the Iranian and Pakistani security forces against innocent Baloch civilians including women and children. Some of the students admitted that this was the first time they learnt about Baloch people and Balochistan.
International Voice for Baloch Missing Persons and Baloch Human Rights Council (Canada) also sent out an open letter to the Honorable Canadian Members of Parliament and appealed the law makers to assert diplomatic pressure on Iran and Pakistan to help end the human rights crisis in Balochistan.
The event was organised by, Aziz Baloch, the Canada Co-coordinator of International Voice for Baloch Missing Persons and Vice president of Baloch Human Rights Council (Canada).
