New York, Sept 17: In a statement issued by the Baloch National Movement (BNM) of North America, it was announced that a joint protest of Baloch and Sindhi activists will be held outside the United Nations to protest the Pakistani atrocities and the ongoing military operations in Sindh and Balochistan.
