A rally was organized from Karachi Arts Council to Press Club on the call of Voice for Baloch Missing (VBMP) on the occasion of International Women’s Day in Karachi, the capital of Sindh.
Baloch Yekjethi Committee (BYC) Karachi strongly supported the rally, as did Awami Workers Party (AWP) and Baloch Students Organisation (BSO) who not only supported but as well as participated in it.
During International Women’s Day, rally participants expressed their opposition to centuries of oppression against women. In Pakistan today, Baloch women are the victims of state oppression and exploitation, now Baloch women are not safe even in homes, intersections, educational institutions, and workplaces.
