The Free Balochistan Movement (Germany Chapter) organised a demonstration in Dortmund, Germany on 25 May to draw attention to the consequences of Pakistan's nuclear tests in Balochistan on 28 May 1998.

These protests were aimed at raising awareness of the dangers posed by Pakistan's nuclear arsenal.

The protesters distributed leaflets in German language and expressed their grievances against the human rights violations being committed by Pakistan and Iran in Balochistan. Banners and placards were displayed informing the German public about the impact of Pakistan's nuclear activities in Balochistan, which have led to environmental degradation and health problems such as cancer and birth defects.

They detailed how agriculture and animal husbandry in the areas of Chagai and Gurdu have suffered huge losses. The protesters accused Pakistan of storing nuclear assets in Balochistan cities including Khuzdar and Somiani and demanded international intervention to deal with the situation.

He warned that Pakistan's possession of nuclear weapons was a threat to regional and global peace, especially given its history of nuclear threats.

FBM Germany chapter organiser Abdul Wajid Baloch expressed concern about Pakistan’s economic instability and the danger of nuclear weapons falling into the hands of extremists and urged responsible countries to support efforts to disarm Pakistan.

FBM activists appealed to international organisations dedicated to nuclear disarmament to assist in removing Pakistan's nuclear arsenal from Balochistan.

Speakers at the protest included Abdul Wajid Baloch, Ubaid Zehri Baloch, Faris Baloch, Bibgar Baloch, Naveed Baloch and Kurdistan human rights activist Rozad.
