Nearest station: Farringdon Tube Station

LONDON: As a part of continuous campaign against forced-disappearances the International Voice for Baloch Missing Person is holding a protest demonstration in front of Amnesty International main office in London on Friday 1st October 2010.

The victims of state terrorism include students, lawyers, doctors, political activists and other members of public who have been asking for justice, equality and freedom.
