Crowds have begun to gather across Pakistan for the Students Solidarity March. 

In Karachi, the march is starting at Regal Chowk and in Lahore it’s at Government College.

Students, labourers and other rights union members have all joined in. Participants are waving the red flag.

They are demanding the education budget be increased to 10% and the reinstatement of student unions. They say that the students themselves have no say in what the administration does, including framing course structures and scholarships. They want democratic rights for students and elections on campus for the unions.

The students claim paramilitary forces have occupied their hostels and say sexual harassment cases are not being investigated properly.  They also claim right wing student organisations are harassing couples on campus.

Students are using signs to put their demands across.
