Emergency Moderator writes an update on the situation in Lahore
- There is a successful sit-in continuing outside Justice Shahid Siddiqui’s House (the Punjab government is trying to forcibly evict him because he didn’t take oath under the PCO – this is in violation to their own rules, which state that even on forced retirement an employee is given six months notice to find alternate accommodation). Asma Jehangir, Hina Jilani and others spent the night, and around 40 protesters are still outside the house forming a human wall to prevent any eviction. If you’re in the area, drop by and join in this great cause- 14 Tollington Road, GOR I, Lahore.
- The Police have completely surrounded the LUMS campus in Lahore – they are threatening to arrest any student that leaves. This is a preemptive strike against this afternoon’s planned protest – 3 pm at the Lahore Press Club – which all in Lahore are urged to attend. Students have revealed receiving threats from police, intelligence agencies and unknown plain clothed men. They are still resolute to protest peacefully and nonviolently.
