Gilgit-Baltistan: Awami Action Committee held protest against load shedding and food crisis in the region

Gilgit-Baltistan, PoK: People in Gilgit-Balltistan are fighting and demanding for basic facilities in the region. The Awami Action Committee (AAC) protested asking to stop load shedding and food crisis in the area.

Speakers, during the protest, said that the Pakistani state has failed to deliver even to provide the basic necessities of life to the people of Gilgit-Baltistan.

The speakers said that their protest will continue for the protection of their basic economic, political and social rights.

Najaf Ali, Shabbir Mayar and others spoke on this occasion.

Last year in October, Awami Action Committee and rights activists gathered in Gilgit, the capital city of illegally-occupied Gilgit Baltistan to oppose Islamabad’s policies, which they said are intrusive, exploitative and discriminatory. The event marked an intensified indigenous resistance to Islamabad’s vigorous attempts at expanding its political control over the illegally occupied region.
