  • The activist called for international community to stand with Balochistan due to the numerous human rights violations
  • Balochistan has been heavily impacted by insurgents and Islamist extremism, causing the residents to live under constant threat to life

Balochistan, August 16, 2017: The activist for World Baloch Organization, Azghar Baloch, urged the international community to stand with Balochistan and its people in these times of atrocities.

The World Baloch Forum was set up in collaboration with Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO)

Balochistan, a province of Pakistan, has been bearing the brunt of the present of terror organizations and Islamist extremists. Forced Kidnappings, abductions, murders, and suppression of any opposition has become common in the lives of Baloch people.

Additional to the issue of insiders is the issue of orders. The multi-billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) initiative between the two countries neighboring India comes at the cost of the Balochistan region. CPEC is China’s interest to which the Pakistani government has remained blind.

Azghar Baloch, the activist, urged the support of the international community. He called for the investigation of human rights violations and to bring peace and stability to the region.

This year earlier, exiled Baloch leaders and activists organized an event called “China’s One Belt One Road Initiative – Its Adverse Impact on Balochistan and the Region” in Berlin, Germany.

Efforts have been made to bring the issues to the attention of the international community. As Azghar Baloch puts it rightly, it is a “humanitarian crisis so rarely heard of.”

The suppression and threat to life of Balochistan people comes from its own nation Pakistan.

The activist, speaking from outside the White House, concluded by urging that the powerful leaders step up so that fundamental human rights of the Baloch people must be respected in all walks of life.

Amid heightened trade tensions between the US and China, tech giant Apple has joined hands with its suppliers to launch a $300 million clean energy fund in China.

The “China Clean Energy Fund” will invest in and develop clean-energy projects totalling more than 1 gigawatt of renewable energy in China, the equivalent of powering nearly 1 million homes, Apple said in a statement on Thursday.

“At Apple, we are proud to join with companies that are stepping up to address the climate challenge,” said Lisa Jackson, Apple’s Vice President of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives.

The Cupertino, California-headquartered tech giant said 10 of its initial suppliers have come forward to jointly invest in the nearly $300 million fund over the next four years.

“We’re thrilled so many of our suppliers are participating in the fund and hope this model can be replicated globally to help businesses of all sizes make a significant positive impact on our planet,” Jackson said.
