Balochwarna News - 14 August to be observed as a Black Day in Balochistan
Baloch Youth Wing - BYW will support call from BRP to strike
August 14th has been declared as a “black day” for Balochistan.   The BNV has termed as “a day to express their dislike for slavery and occupation.”  BRP also announced August 14 as a Black day in all of Balochistan and internationally to condemn the illegal Pakistani occupation of Balochistan.   BRP activists are encouraged to hold references, Quran Khwani (Holy Quran recitation) and distribute food in memory of Shaheed-e-Azam Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti on his martyrdom anniversary of August 26th.  BNF supported by BRP, BYW, as well as other Free-Balochistan parties, encourage all freedom loving Baloch to join a "shutter down wheel jam" province wide strike on the August "14th Black Day".

On July 29th, While Pakistan military is flexing its muscle in Balochistan, 70 Taliban Militants Bombed and Stormed a Dera Ismail Khan Prison, in the neighboring Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province.  During the attack Taliban Militants killed six guards, Executed six Shiite inmates, and released 250+ prisoners.  Although a handful of Pakistani security forces “engaged the attackers” none of the Taliban Militants were killed and they all Escaped unscathed along with the Prisoners into Waziristan.  Many of the escaped prisoners are reported to be Dangerous members of the banned LEJ Terrorist group.  
The prison officials have admitted they were forewarned of the impending attack, and even held a conference, yet made No Preparations.  Reports indicate that several Bombs were detonated along the walls, and the gates attacked with RPGs.  With the 400,000+ soldiers stationed in neighboring Balochistan, its inconceivable how such an attack could have succeeded without State Compliance.
After the 2012 Taliban attack at the Bannu Prison, the Pakistan government allotted an additional Rs350 Million to Prison security in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa regions.  Rs120 million were spent on procurement of technological security devices such as walkthrough gates, explosive scanners and closed circuit cameras.  Somehow armed with both the knowledge of an impending attack and a wealth of modern security equipment, the Taliban militants were able to plant explosives along the walls and invade the prison with minimal opposition.   Two days prior to the attack, officials conducted searches of the prison & seized 60 cell phones.  Mr Abbas, who is also the superintendent of Peshawar central prison, confirmed in an interview on the 26th that “banned items couldn't reach Prisoners without the Support of Insiders.”
