Protest - High Commision, London Nov 5

he Pakistan Lawyers Movement (UK) and National Union
of Pakistan Students and Alumni (UK) will be holding a
protest in front of the Pakistani High Commission in

The imposition of this emergency is aimed against
democratic rights, the rule of law, and civil
liberties in Pakistan. Since the last year it is clear
that the lawyers movement, together with the media, is
the main force that is playing the role of a

Supreme Court Bar Council President Aitizaz Ahsen, the
black out of media coverage inside Pakistan, the
storming of the Supreme Court, the abrogation of the
1973 constitution and all related measures demonstrate
without a shadow of a doubt that this state of
emergency is aimed against this democratic opposition.

We hail the Supreme Court for denouncing the
imposition of this state of emergency as legally null
as a great act in defense of the civil liberties of
all Pakistani citizens. We call on all democratic
forces to organize boldly against this state of

We hope that you will come and join us.

Date: Monday 5th November
Time: 2 pm sharp
Venue: Pakistan High Commission 35-36 Lowndes Sq,
London, SW1X 9JN
