WASHINGTON, DC : Pro-independence Baloch from the U.S.A. and Canada and their allies and friends will converge in the U.S. capital on May 28 to protest against Pakistan's nuclear tests in Occupied Balochistan in front of the White House.

Every year Baloch in Balochistan and elsewhere stage protests against the nuclear tests to mark the May 1998 tests, though Pakistan officially celebrates the day of infamy.

What : Protest against Pakistan military's tests in Occupied Balochistan and continued U.S. aid to Islamabad.

When : Friday, May 28, 2010 at 12 noon.

Where : White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington DC 20050, near Farragut West & North metro stations.

Why : Texas-sized Balochistan was not a part of Pakistan when the British created it in August 1947 but was illegally annexed by Pakistan on March 27, 1948. Fifty years later on May 27, 1998 Pakistan tested its deadly nuclear weapons in Balochistan. Over the years Pakistan has killed thousands of Baloch patriots yearning for indepedence, including former governor and chief minister of Balochistan Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti. More than a thousand remain missing. Today billions of dollars of U.S.taxpayers monies are being wasted on Pakistan miitary though the country is the biggest threat to the well-being and security of the U.S.

How : Protesters will gather in front of the White House, unfurl banners for stopping aid to Pakistan and demand independence for Balochistan.
