Abdul Qadeer Baloch

Mama Abdul Qadeer Baloch lost his son in the year of 2009 and found his lifeless body back in 2011 at the border with Iran. His family is one of many in Balochistan who has to deal with missing sons, fathers, nephews or brothers — most of them never to be found again. This lead Mama Qadeer to organize the Long March for Missing Persons which proceeded for 2000 kilometers from Quetta to Islamabad to finally end at Karachi Press Club. Mama Abdul Qadeer Baloch remains to sit each day in front of Karachi Press Club ever since to raise awareness for the cause of Balochistan and to put a halt to the disappearance of his people.
