Awareness Campaign and Support for VBMP Long March for the Enforced Disappeared in Balochistan by the Pakistani Security Forces
Collateral Damage had the chance of interviewing Aziz Baloch on the occasion of the long march from Quetta to Karachi by Baloch activists to demand the recovery of the abducted Baloch persons. Aziz is the Canadian co-ordinator of the International Voice for Baloch Missing Persons and the Vice President of the Baloch Human Rights Council of Canada.
Despite a democratic transition, military operation continues in Balochistan. Why has the Pakistani state failed to put an end to army action in the province?
Let me be clear from a Baloch perspective: this is not a democratic government and the Baloch people spoke loud and clear in the May 2013 election by boycotting it. It was not an election but simply a selection by Pakistani Army and the Frontier Corp (FC) in Balochistan.
London : Around 100 Baloch activists and their supporters took out a protest march on Saturday (30-03-2013), against forced disappearances Balochistan and the illegal occupation of Balochistan by Pakistan on 27 March 1948.

Baloch Martyrs honoured at the Vancouver BHRC-IVBMP Joint Gathering
Vancouver, July 17, 2011 – International Voice for Baloch Missing Persons – Canada (IVBMP) and Baloch Human Rights Council – Canada (BHRC) jointly organized an event in Vancouver, Canada to honour the Baloch martyrs who paid the ultimate price for the freedom of Balochistan.
Toronto, July 4, 2011 – Baloch Human Rights Council (Canada) and the International Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (IVBMP) will be holding a joint event in Toronto to honour the martyrdom of Prof. Saba Dashtyari, target killed by the Pakistani military death squad. He was assassinated on June 1, 2011 while walking back home in Quetta, Balochistan.
Prof. Dashtyari was a revolutionary scholar, a poet, and author of several books on Balochi language, literature, and history. His academic career at the Balochistan University was a beacon of light that inspired students such as Qambar Chakar who fearlessly embraced martyrdom in the custody of the Pakistani intelligence services after extreme degree of torture.
Since July 2010, the Pakistani paramilitary death squads have dumped more than 200 mutilated bodies of disappeared Baloch students, journalists, lawyers, teachers, and political activists in the wilderness. Forensic reports of the discovered bodies are indicative of extreme torture including broken bones, deep cuts, burns, and point-blank shots to the head.
In the backdrop of the liberation struggle in Balochistan and mass scale human rights violations committed by the Pakistan Army against Baloch civilians – Prof. Dashtyari took to the streets, armed only with his books, pen, and a voice that spoke without fear.
Join us to honour the martyrdom of this brave son of Balochistan who knew well that the price of freedom is blood and did not falter for a moment.
In history, there is no death – there is only continuity.
