Muzaffarabad, Azad Kashmir (PaJK) Azadi Times: In a historic development within Azad Kashmir, an unprecedented joint assembly of People’s Action Committees from all corners of the region gathered today in Muzaffarabad, collectively steering a new course towards addressing their pressing issues.
This concerted effort has resulted in the formulation of a comprehensive action plan aimed at bringing much-needed attention to the region’s concerns and demands.
Azad Kashmir residents, especially those with access to social media, are earnestly urged to read this message and share it widely, as the movement gains momentum and the call for justice resonates louder than ever.
Key Highlights from the Groundbreaking Meeting:
- Continued Protests: Diverse localities and sub-district headquarters are committed to maintaining ongoing protests, while those regions not yet actively participating are strongly encouraged to join this collective voice.

- Symbolic Protests at Government Offices: Communities across various regions and sub-districts are poised to stage symbolic protests right in front of local government offices, symbolizing their resolute demand for change.
- Formation of Local Committees: At the grassroots level, community, ward, union council, sub-district, and district committees will be established to involve as many individuals as possible in this formidable movement. These committees will serve to mobilize citizens, shield them from coercion, and ensure their safety.
- Mass Torchlight Rallies: A powerful display of unity and determination, mass torchlight rallies are scheduled to take place across ten districts, setting the night sky ablaze with hope.
- Government Shutdown: As a final recourse should their demands go unheard, the movement contemplates a government shutdown in the next phase.

Interviews, statements, and all communication concerning the movement will be channeled through a centralized platform.
- Exclusive Negotiations: The movement reaffirms its commitment to engage exclusively through the designated committee, refraining from individual discussions with government officials, thus maintaining the collective strength of their cause.
- Seeking Support Beyond Borders: The movement seeks to garner support and solidarity from not only across Azad Kashmir but also from other Pakistani provinces and Gilgit-Baltistan, enlisting the aid of human rights activists and trade unions in their noble quest.
