Wednesday 30th March 2011 is the 8th anniversary of the abduction of Aafia Siddiqui and her three children. Held without charge and abused in secret US detention, her whereabouts remained unknown for 5 years before being charged and convicted in a shocking miscarriage of justice. She was sentenced to 86 years in the US in September 2010 where she enters her eighth year in custody in total isolation.
In a day of protest and solidarity, supporters will form a funeral procession symbolising the death of American Justice and Pakistan’s Honour marching from the Pakistan Embassy and concluding with a rally at the US Embassy, addressed by a host of prominent speakers.
Be her voice. Stand with Aafia today.
