A rally organized by Baloch Human Right Council (UK), Balochistan Liberation Organization, and World Sindhi Congress was held in front of the US Embassy in London on July 31, 2011.

The rally was attended by a huge number of the Baloch and Sindhis in the UK. The patriotic Baloch leader Nawabzada Meer Hayrbiar was also present in the gathering.
The speakers highlighted various brutal acts of the Pakistan army, intelligence agencies and their proxy death squads which included kidnapping, inhuman torture and extrajudicial murder of the Baloch intellectuals, students, doctors, engineers and political activists. Speakers expressed their solidarity with families affected by the inhuman actions of the Pakistani army in Sindh and Balochistan. They condemn the on going Pakistani state terrorism in Balochistan since its illegal forcible annexation and requested the US for immediate intervention in order to save the Baloch from the systematic genocide.  They demanded immediate stoppage of every kind of aid to Pakistan from the US and its allies as it is being used to crush the Baloch and Sindhi national resistance against subjugation and exploitation. Speakers included Abdullah Baloch, Jamshed Amiri, Kader Jatoi, Mir Ghulam Hussain, Faiz Baluch, Mehrab Sarjoi, Zahed Baloch, Mansoor Baloch, Rahim Bandovi, Dr. Lakhu Luhana and Samad Baloch.
