Baloch activists protest at Chinese Embassy in London
Baloch activists have launched a week-long sit-in protest outside the Chinese Embassy here to protest against "China-Pakistan nexus" in resource-rich Balochistan.
During the week-long protest, two Free Balochistan Movement (FBM) members will stage a sit-in demonstration outside the Chinese Embassy daily – day and night.The protest will end with a big demonstration on October 1, which is China’s National Day.
The FBM has described the protest as a peaceful campaign against the "China-Pakistan nexus" in Balochistan.
"China has now become the 21st century East India Company in Balochistan. Their expansionist designs are well known in the region. Vietnam is the prime example of Chinese diabolical nature. It endured 17 Chinese military invasions. Today, we can see that it doesn’t respect the international laws over the South China Sea," the FBM said. It added Pakistan is in conflict with Balochistan because the "morally bankrupted state, dominated by Punjab, had acquired Balochistan in March 1948 in blatant violation of international norms and law just in the name of Islam".
