Earlier in the week, the World Baloch Organisation (WBO) launched an awareness campaign in New York to highlight the alarming human rights violation in Balochistan. This comes as world leaders gather in the city to attend the annual United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session.

As part of the campaign, mobile billboards were being driven around the United Nations headquarters, with messages like "United Nations help end human rights abuses in Balochistan" urging world leaders to help end the human rights abuses inflicted on the people of Balochistan.

In July, a plane with a banner reading "World Must Speak Up For Balochistan" was seen flying over Edgbaston stadium during the Australia-England match.

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive.

Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
