In a show of accord, the Baloch National Movement’s Germany unit staged a protest in Trier, Rhineland Palatinate, on February 10, vehemently condemning the Baloch Genocide and fake encounters orchestrated by the Pakistan Army.

Jabbar Baloch, the Secretary-General of the Baloch National Movement Germany Chapter, led the charge, expressing deep concerns over human rights violations, purported fake encounters, and blaming Pakistan Army of engaging in war crimes within Pak-occupied-Balochistan. In a fervent plea, he called upon the international community to take immediate action, urging the United Nations to dispatch a mission to investigate the ongoing atrocities.

Badal Baloch, serving as the NRW Unit Secretary, pointed fingers at the Pakistan Army, human rights transgressions through the Counterterrorism department of Police (CTD) and local death squad operatives. Stressing the significance of international scrutiny, he emphasized the need for impartial investigations to ensure accountability for those deemed responsible.

Furthermore, Safia Manzoor, an active member of the Baloch National Movement, also brought attention to the plight of enforced disappearances, particularly targeting activists and journalists. Advocating for an end to these disturbing incidents, she called for accountability, underscoring the profound impact on families living in perpetual fear.

Asif Baloch, addressing participants, highlighted the essence of peaceful protest against Baloch Genocide, human rights violations, and staged encounters. Qasim Baloch delved into the historical context, depicting Balochistan’s treatment as a colony since its annexation by Pakistan in 1948, with numerous Baloch individuals facing enforced disappearances and prolonged torture for their pursuit of justice.

Moreover, Sadiq Saeed Baloch, during his impassioned speech, appealed to human rights organizations, including the United Nations and the European Union, to take decisive action against the injustices in Pak-occupied-Balochistan. Habib Baloch also criticized the deafening silence of the international community, arguing that it only served to embolden the Pakistan Army in an ongoing systemic Baloch genocide.

Another activist, Ahmed Baloch shed light on the struggles faced by families of forcibly disappeared persons and killed by the Pakistan Army in staged encounters. Criticizing the Pakistani establishment for responding with force to pleas for justice, he accused them of orchestrating fake encounters to portray Baloch enforced disappeared persons as terrorists. The protest serves as a poignant reminder of the complex issues surrounding the resource-rich region and the impassioned calls for international intervention.
