Stop The War Coalition: protest rally today

The Stop The War Coalition (STWC) has organized a peaceful rally at 04:00 p.m. March 19, 2007, to protest the Iraqi occupation.

The procession will start from Regal Chowk and will go on towards the Karachi Press Club (KPC). International Socialists Pakistan is also part of the rally.

The main purpose is to speak out against imperialism and US aggression. Maybe we at the White Ribbon Campaign could join them too.

PS: Apologies if this sounds all news-report-y, but I absolutely HAD to let everyone know! And yes, this IS relevant to Karachi — Regal Chowk and the KPC are in Karachi. :P

    1) White armbands.

    2) Judging by our strength there (number of people representing us), I could ask them to give us some time to address the gathering as well.

    I’m participating in the rally on behalf of International Socialists Pakistan (all hail surkha-ism!). I’ll be representing the WRC too, though. Everything else depends on how many people turn up from our (WRC) side.

    http://Proud-Pakistani.com was suppose to be independent right ?

    Also,why they have a website on GEOCITIES ?
    It only takes less than 1000 rupee to have own domain for an year. As for designing. I am willing to do it for free.

    Socialist Party of Pakistan ;) and so close to the CJP issue I suspect we might be rounded up teargassed and 2 hours later told – OH so you are bloggers – aren’t you supposed to be home geeking away on your computers ;) LOL – keep me posted.

    MS you have a point White Band For Justice is non-political and it has little to do with the war in Iraq – You definitely have a point there.
