The World Baloch Organization (WBO) on Sunday has added mobile advertising to its ongoing 'Free Balochistan' campaign in New York.

The WBO ran a mobile advertising campaign, adding to its ongoing taxi campaign in the city.

Mobile billboards carrying slogans such as - "#FreeBalochistan from human rights abuses" and "Raise your voice against human rights abuses in #Balochistan by Pakistan Army" circled prominent locations across the city, including the consulates of Pakistan and China.

The ad also read - "No to CPEC, the China-Pakistan project aims to loot and plunder Balochistan."

The campaign's goal is to raise awareness among the American public about the ethnic persecution and gross human rights violations in Pakistan-occupied Balochistan and support the Baloch people's quest for peace and freedom.

The WBO launched its New York campaign with 100 taxis carrying similar slogans on December 20.

The campaign will run for a month, during which the WBO will continue to apply different methods of campaigning to highlight the dire situation in Balochistan
