The worst of the racist attempts are taking place in Iran with the silent acquiescence of the rest of the world.
By Ali Badri
The world has lived under the shadow of discrimination for a long time before the liberation movements appeared to realize the demands of equality for the oppressed peoples. What happened during the racist massacres remains a disgraceful stain on the face of humanitarianism. Many of nations have freed themselves from this ghost, but still some of them are living under racist murderers.
If the exploiter wants to repress our struggle for freedom by use of might, we wholeheartedly welcome it. In that this policy will definitely work as an impetus in terms of shaking off the slumber of slavery of my dear countrymen.
I want to convey this to the ruling class, the Punjabi oppressors and their yes-men that you might have the right to kill me to death. But I too have an authority in my hands which I can use as per my will. My companions and I will choose the opportune time for that. That’s the right to death! Nobody can snatch this right from me.

The people of Balochistan are suspicious of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.
By Shah Meer
The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) will be a “win-win” proposition according to statements made by the leadership of Pakistan and China. But the project is raising eyebrows and fears among the Baloch people, the indigenous community of Gwadar and the entire province of Balochistan. At the heart of the project is the city of Gwadar on the southwestern coast of the Arabian Sea in Balochistan province. Under CPEC, China and Pakistan plan to build a route to connect Gwadar Port in Pakistan with Kashgar in Xinjiang. The Chinese government has vowed to build the deepest seaport in the world in Gwadar, while creating infrastructure, energy and transportation projects along the route, reasoning that the resultant prosperity and economic development would change the shape of the most backward of Pakistan’s provinces specifically, as well as the whole of Pakistan.
