Today, as has already been announced, three more comrades have been released from the Rangers’ headquarters Karachi, making a total of six who have been freed.
Three comrades, Bilawal Baloch, Mohammed Gulbaz and Umar Riaz, remain in custody and the Rangers have said they will be released tomorrow, 27 April.
Comrades who have been released so far are travelling to their homes and will report when they arrive safely. They will also send detailed accounts of the ordeal they had to face in these past days and nights.
The releases so far are a victory for working-class solidarity across the world, and a vindication of the protests that have been held inside Pakistan and in many other countries. Many left-wing organizations in Pakistan supported the comrades through in this ordeal, which required a lot of courage and political understanding on their part.
We will provide a detailed report soon and will inform all our comrades and sympathizers around the world of the situation here on the ground. Until then, we appeal to comrades to remain active and carry forward the campaign to highlight the atrocities of the Pakistani state against socialists across Pakistan.
