Seminar : Balochistan Solidarity Front

INVITATION
The Balochistan Solidarity Front is an effort of numerous progressive
political organizations to support the democratic struggle of the people of
Balochistan. We invite you to a panel discussion on the burgeoning conflict
in Sui between government security forces and local resistance. This
discussion will be held on:

Monday, January 31st 2005 at 2.30pm
At the Envoy Continental Hotel, Fazl-e-Haq Rd,
Blue Area, Islamabad

The discussion will attempt to bring together political workers,
journalists,
members of parliament, intellectuals, and social activists that have
followed
the emergence of the present conflict. The purpose of the discussion is for
progressive forces in the twin cities to express solidarity with the
resistance of popular forces in Balochistan.

The history of Balochistan’s relationship with the center in Pakistan
has
been consistently troubled. The province’s forced annexation in the
1950s,
the denial of provincial autonomy, and the pillaging of precious gas
resources are problems that are now being topped by the planned development
of Gwadar port and military cantonments. The situation is ever more
complicated by the obvious interests in the region of the US and China. It
is in this context that the roundtable discussion will be initiated.

Confirmed speakers as of now include:
Senator Sanaullah Baloch Balochistan National Party
Senator Asfandyar Wali Khan Awami National Party
Sufi Abdul Khaliq Baloch Communist Mazdoor Kissan Party
Senator Amanullah Kanrani Jamhoori Watan Party


We hope you will join us.
