Invitation: Public Rally in Islamabad, Friday, 6th July
The campaign to free the Hunza Five arrives in the capital on Friday, 6th July, 2012.
Supporters are expected to arrive from Lahore, Gujranwala and Mardan to join the main body of protestors gathered at Aabpara Chowk at 3 PM. We will then march to the National Assembly and present our demands to the federal government:
- Withdrawal of all the baseless cases brought against the Hunza Five
- Justice for the family of Sherullah Baig and Sher Afzaal Baig, including the publication of the report of the GB government’s own repressed judicial inquiry
- Payment of the full compensation to all the families as originally promised by the authorities
Supporters in Lahore who wish to travel with the campaign bus to Islamabad are requested to put down their names on the sign-up sheet. Friends from Lahore will then contact you to confirm your place.
As the letter from Gilgit jail from Comrade Iftikhar Hussain makes absolutely clear, we cannot afford to rest until all our friends have been released if we wish to avoid a repetition of the barbaric torture inflicted on them.
