Plane with UN must help end human rights abuses in Balochistan banner flies in New York

An airplane carrying a message of Balochistan people’s rights hovered over Manhattan skyline on Thursday. The message said that the United Nations (UN) must help end human rights abuses in Balochistan.

“UN must help end human rights abuses in Balochistan,” the message attached to the airplane read.

The aircraft circled the Statue of Liberty, New York.

Earlier in the week, the World Baloch Organisation (WBO) launched an awareness campaign in New York to highlight the alarming human rights violation in Balochistan. This comes as world leaders gather in the city to attend the annual United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session.

As part of the campaign, mobile billboards were being driven around the United Nations headquarters, with messages like “United Nations help end human rights abuses in Balochistan” urging world leaders to help end the human rights abuses inflicted on the people of Balochistan.

In July, a plane with a banner reading “World Must Speak Up For Balochistan” was seen flying over Edgbaston stadium during the Australia-England match.
