United for Justice: Thousands Rally in Taunsa Against Baloch Genocide

A Remarkable Display of Solidarity

In an extraordinary display of unity, Taunsa witnessed a remarkable event on December 20th. Thousands of people came together to support the long march against the alleged ‘Baloch genocide’. The march, which started on December 6 from Turbat, is a strong stance against enforced disappearances and custodial killings in Balochistan, as reported by The Balochistan Post.

Mahrang Baloch, a prominent human rights activist, addressed the crowd in Taunsa Sharif. She spoke passionately about the unity and shared struggles of the Baloch people, declaring, “Our pain is one, we are the oppressed of the same land.” Her powerful message, that “Balochistan is incomplete without Koh-e-Sulaiman,” struck a chord with the attendees.

Echoes of Solidarity

The atmosphere was charged with slogans like “Rajanpur to DG Khan is Balochistan” and “Stop Baloch Genocide.” These echoed throughout the gathering, reinforcing the collective call against oppression. Mahrang highlighted the significance of the march, especially after the killing of Shaheed Balach Baloch, and described it as a beacon of hope for the Baloch nation.

The Journey of the March

Mahrang detailed the march’s journey, which began with a two-week sit-in at Shaheed Fida Chowk in Turbat. Due to the lack of justice, the movement escalated into a long march across Balochistan, eventually reaching Quetta. After a four-day sit-in in Quetta, involving families of missing persons and children killed without trial, the march is now en route to Islamabad, crossing Mount Sulaiman.

Call to Islamabad

Mahrang urged the people of Islamabad to join and energize the movement, aiming to put an end to the Baloch genocide. The marchers are set to proceed to Dera Ismail Khan, with Islamabad as their final destination, where they plan to join an ongoing sit-in at the Press Club.

The Broader Movement

This sit-in in Islamabad, now in its 23rd day, features families of missing Baloch individuals. It is part of a larger movement that seeks to bring international attention to the issue of enforced disappearances in Balochistan. This movement, as The Balochistan Post reports, is a crucial step towards highlighting and addressing the grievances of the Baloch people.
