SANA supports Long March; condemns military action in
Balochistan, forced exile of rape victm

Sindhi Association of North America, SANA, has
expressed solidarity with the struggle in Sindh,
including the Long March being carried out presently
from Sukkur to Karachi, against Kalabagh Dam, Greater
Thal Canal and other mega water projects. In a
resolution adopted at the annual dinner hosted by the
organization’s Houston, TX chapter, SANA called for
a halt to any dams on Indus River and just
distribution of water.

SANA also condemned military operation in Balochistan
and urged the government to pull out troops from the
area, release the activists and hold meaningful
dialogue with political leadership to resolve the
issue peacefully.

In other resolutions, SANA called for autonomy to the
federating units, transferring ownership of the
resources to the provinces and restoring democracy in
the country.

SANA criticized the announcement made by the
handpicked Prime Minister to issue national ID cards
to illegal aliens. It urged the government to
repatriate all the illegal aliens to their countries
of origin.

SANA condemned the virtual house arrest, abduction and
forced exile of the Sui rape victim and her spouse. It
demanded that justice should be done to the victim and
the culprits should be arrested and brought to the
book.

Aziz Narejo
President, SANA
