Dutch humanitarians join Pakistani Christians seeking an end to global persecution!

Julia de Blaauw from Global Human Rights Defence deliver rallying call for all humanitarians at the BPCA protest on the 10th March.  GHRD recently invited Wilson Chowdhry to speak at an European Union Conference in the EU Headquarters in November last year and now joins a number of MEP's interested in the work of the BPCA, since then. Our protest on the 10th March now has a global guest list that is set to launch our campaign for justice in Pakistan, to a new level.  To make this event a success we call on support from the wider Christian church and people with other faiths concerned about the ongoing global atrocities mankind faces.  We need you all to join us on the 25th and make your voices heard, only in unity will we have progress!
