The Baloch and Sindhi communities in the UK demanded physical intervention from the international community in the wake of continued atrocities being committed by the Pakistani military in Balochistan.
According to reports, a rally organized by Baloch Human Right Council (UK), Balochistan Liberation Organization, and World Sindhi Congress was held in front of the US Embassy in London on July 31, 2011.

The protest was aimed to draw the attention of the international community in general and the US government in particular towards the crimes against humanity in Balochistan. The Baloch leader Nawabzada Meer Hayrbiar was also present in the gathering.

Speakers expressed their solidarity with families affected by the inhuman actions of the Government in Sindh and Balochistan. They demanded immediate stoppage of every kind of aid to Pakistan from the US and its allies as it is being used to crush the Baloch and Sindhi national resistance against subjugation and exploitation. Speakers included Abdullah Baloch, Jamshed Amiri, Kader Jatoi, Faiz Baluch, Mehrab Sarjoi, Zahed Baloch, Mansoor Baloch, Rahim Bandovi, Dr. Lakhu Luhana and Samad Baloch.

A letter will be sent to President Obama urging him for immediate action against Pakistani military establishment and urging him to use the US influence for the trial of Pakistani military officials in the International Criminal Court for the crimes committed against humanity in Balochistan.

Before that , Human Rights Watch stressed Pakistan's government to end widespread disappearances of suspected militants and activists by the military, intelligence agencies, and the paramilitary Frontier Corps in the southwestern province of Balochistan, but this demand was rejected by Pakistan Army.
