How best to use arbitrary state power

Dear Readers,

We are starting an effort to collate all reports of detentions – often without specific charges and in total violation of habeas corpus – made in connection with the Long March.

We are starting off with two reports, one from the Labour Party of Pakistan (LPP) and one from the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI).

LPP:

14 March, Hyderabad: Muhib Lighari, Faiz Kerio, Munawar Chandio, Sarfaraz Kumber, Ghulam Qadir Mirani, Hasan Nasir and Shakela

12 March, Karachi Toll Plaza: Shela Rizwan, Khalid, Shakeel, Sattar, Sadiq

Police has raided LPP offices and homes of the activists of LPP in Lahore, Toba Tek Singh, Layya, Charsadda, Qasur

PTI:

5:15 PM, 14 March, Icchra, Lahore: Madni, Shahzad & Javed arrested

We are collecting all reports of arrests, torture and other forms of abuse of state authority related to the Long March. Please send your reports to longmarch@seenreport.com.

This will automate the process and is likely to continue running even after cell phone services have been shut down – expected to happen in Lahore around noon, possibly later in Islamabad.
