What we should know about the conflict in Balochistan

March 6, 2019 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

“If you have never heard about Balochistan, on the 6th of March we are going to present the story of one AISA member who flew from Balochistan and found a new house in Amsterdam.

Balochistan lies at the heart of the Middle East, surrounded by Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and the Arabian sea. The country has been demanding independence from Pakistan since 1948. Enforced disappearances and extrajudicial killings are perpetuated every day by the Pakistani army. Human rights are openly violated and the people live in precarious conditions. The latest news report 18 people were killed and 77 disappeared in January.

Together with activists and academic experts we want to raise awareness, bring our refugees’ stories to the public, and discuss global responsibility and the span of action.”
