Defence of Baba Jan and his comrades

Wednesday 9 May 2012, by Pierre Rousset

An important petition has been launched in defence of Baba Jan and his comrades. It includes a very useful summary of the case. It was initiated by Tariq Ali, Noam Chomsky, Quanader Bux Memon, Vijay Prashad, Farooq Tariq, atc. Have it signed and use it as a reference for other initiatives.

It was initially published on Naked Punch as an “Open Letter Demanding the Release of Baba Jan Hunzai“.

It is also on ESSF now: “Open Letter Demanding the Release of Baba Jan Hunzai in Gilgit-Baltistan (Pakistan)”.

For more information, including the financial solidarity campaign, see Urgent Appeal : Death threat to activists imprisoned in Pakistan in this issue of International Viewpoint.
