GOTTINGEN: The Free Balochistan Movement, headed by Baloch national leader Hyrbyair Marri, has organised a protest demonstration in Germany’s Gottingen city on Saturday to record the protest of the Baloch nation against China-Pakistan collaboration in human rights violations in Balochistan and Baloch genocide.
Activists of other pro-freedom political parties the Baloch Republican Party and the Baloch National Movement also took part in FBM’s protest to express the collective anger of Baloch nation to Chinese’s partnership with Balochistan in Baloch genocide. Several local German activists including two journalists also joined the Baloch protesters to show their support for Balochistan.
The protesters chanted slogans and displayed placards inscribed with various slogans about Pakistani state’s atrocities against Baloch people. The protest also involved a brief drama in which few Baloch activists wore the blood-stained shirt as victims of Pakistani state brutalities and notorious kill and dump policy of Pakistani security agencies in Balochistan while one Baloch activist played the role of UN who looked other way turning a blind eye on Baloch genocide.
The demonstrators also put on display blood-stained child dolls in their efforts to show that Pakistan was killing innocent Baloch children during its indiscriminate attacks on Baloch villages.
May commuters stopped by to show their sympathy and support to Baloch freedom movement and expressed their hatred about what Pakistan is doing in Balochistan. The Baloch activists explained to bypassers that Pakistani illegally and forcibly occupied the sovereign Baloch state in 1948 and currently Balochistan is one of the most militarized regions in the world. China and Pakistan have now joined hands in repressing the legitimate, democratic struggle of the Baloch nation to regain its freedom and independence.
Many activists expressed their views during the protest.
Kurdish activist Aaqi Kurd who said both Iran and Pakistan are oppressive states who are committing crimes against Baloch and Kurdish people. He said the world must take notice of the crimes of these states.
Other speakers included Sameer Baloch, Fateh Jan Baloch. The FBM activists said Baloch nation on the ground are strongly resisting against China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) because Baloch believe that Pakistani and the Chinese governments’ deals in respect of Baloch resources and ports, in Balochistan, are completely illegal. Baloch have not taken part in these deals and have never accepted them and will never consider them as legitimate.
“The only beneficiary parties in exploiting Baloch resources so far have been the rulers of Pakistan and China. Baloch have every right to use all legal and moral means and routes to stop such exploitation of their natural resources and their land by any colonial power. Above all, we have every right to be free and independent,” the speakers said.
The activists said that Baloch are secular and very conscientious people. Balochistan is a rich land but the colonial rulers of Balochistan have reduced the Baloch nation to of the most deprived nations in the world. With these deals and projects, the Chinese government has collaborated with a Pakistani theocratic state in augmenting further miseries on the Baloch people and has further exacerbated the systematic genocide of the Baloch people in Balochistan.
The Free Balochistan Movement activists have requested the people of Germany including German media, students, intellectuals and human rights activists to help raise voice against Baloch genocide before it is too late and Balochistan is turned to another Rwanda.
