A member of the Socialist Party's sister party in Sweden spoke at the United Nations about the Pakistani regime's brutal repression of Balochistan.
Workers and the poor in the province "are threatened by religious extremism, militarised clans, suicide bombers and state terrorism."
Kristofer Lundberg of Rättvisepartiet Socialisterna also said "European governments are no longer credible representatives of human rights when they continue with deportations to war, terror and dictatorship. The new Swedish asylum law is a total attack on the right of asylum."
He concluded that "The working class in Balochistan is in great need of help and solidarity from the international labour movement...
"Only under a banner of unity of the working class against war, occupation and oppression, for peace, equality and a socialist federation of the region, can peace and freedom be achieved. This includes the right to independence for Balochistan and other national minorities."
