September 27, 2016: Free Balochistan Activists (FBM) have organized a week-long sit in front of Chinese Embassy in London to protest against China-Pakistan nexus. The protest has started from 25th Sept 2016 and will end on October 1, 2016, which is China’s National Day. The week-long campaign is to protest against the pillage of Balochistan’s natural resources by the China-Pakistan “nexus”.
The FBM which is a group of activists demanding for the liberty and withdrawal from Pakistan will seek to uncover China’s expansionist designs in Balochistan. The FBM described this campaign as a peaceful campaign against the China-Pakistan nexus. Two members of the FBM will sit in front of the Chinese Embassy every day and night for one week. On the last day of the campaign, the FBM will arrange a protest outside Embassy from 2 PM to 5 PM.

According to TOI reports, the FBM’s said, “China, ‘the 21st century East India Company in Balochistan,’ had been ‘looting’ Balochistan’s natural resources for decades with Pakistan’s help, and it had now “intensified its efforts to consolidate its permanent grip over Balochistan’s Gwadar coast and other areas wherein 2001 it sought to anchor its military outpost in the name of the Gwadar deep-sea port project.”
Further, the FBM supposed that Pakistan had procured China’s help to control the Baloch freedom struggle, for they knew it could not do so on its own. China is alleged of helping Pakistan with all types of financial and technical support in its evil design to change the demographic look out of Balochistan and make the Balochs a minority in their own land.

The protesters began the campaign with placards which said : “CPEC [China Pakistan Economic Border] is the corridor of death and destruction for Baloch” and “China: Hands off Balochistan”.
FBM says, this week’s campaign is open to all pro-Baloch freedom activists and human rights activists. FBM activist Faiz Baloch told TOI, “this UK-based protest is the third phase of an international campaign – following events organized in Germany in July, and outside the UN headquarters in New York earlier this month. After London, they’ll continue to protest in other countries”.
