"We appeal to the countries who believe in democracy, human rights and freedom of speech especially groups like the European Union and the United Nations, to pressurise Pakistan to stop the ongoing genocide of Baloch people in Balochistan," said one of the protestors.

"We strongly condemn this country (Pakistan) that was formed in the name of Islam and is involved in the Genocide of Balochs." he added.

The protestor also thanked Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for raising this issue. Similar protest was also witnessed in Melbourne today where the Baloch activists raised 'stop genocide of Baloch people', 'we want peace' and 'Balochistan zindabad' slogans during their protest.
