A joint demonstration has been organised for 03:00 p.m. tomorrow (December 18) outside the Karachi Press Club (KPC), to protest the State’s brutalities against the Students Action Committee (SAC) rally in Islamabad today.
While the protest has been called by the CMKP and the Labour Party of Pakistan (LPP), we appeal to Peoples Resistance, lawyers, students, journalists, labour unions — every citizen — to please join us there. A strong message has to be sent across to the State tomorrow: these atrocities will NOT stop us!
Friends of the Resistance, today’s events in Islamabad proved once and for all that the so-called lifting of the emergency is nothing but a sham. If this was done in Islamabad today, it could be done in Karachi too. Aakhir kabb takk bardaasht karengey yeh tamaasha hum? Please come to the press club tomorrow to express solidarity with the brave souls who stood up to the State’s brutalities today.
Countless were injured, and 40 have been arrested (including seven women). We HAVE to show Musharraf and his cronies that this brutality will NOT stop us anymore. Please join us at the press club at 03:00 p.m. tomorrow. Bring yourself, bring friends. Bring banners, flags and placards. Above everything, please try to bring as many people as possible — there’s power in numbers.
Power to the People!!!
In Complete Solidarity
