The March is upon us!
Aurat March in Karachi is to be held on March 12!
The annual Aurat March this year has been moved ahead from Women’s Day which was falling on a working day in 2023.
To accommodate the working females the organizers of the Aurat March Karachi have decided to reschedule and move it to the march to March 12, Sunday.
“Aurat March Karachi will be held on March 12, 2023, this year. We continue to stand in complete solidarity with the Aurat Marches in Hyderabad, Lahore, Islamabad and Multan that will be held on March 8, 2023,” read the caption of the announcement made via an Instagram post.
“Our hunger, social security, a living wage, an end to bonded labour, rehabilitation of flood victims, an end to mob violence, an end to domestic violence, the Transgender Persons Protection Act 2018 and to end forced conversions,” it added.
“On account of March 8 being a weekday, we have decided to hold Aurat March in Karachi on Sunday, March 12 instead so that the working class communities we work with do not have to experience the distress of losing out on a day of wages. The march will be held with all its fire and energy on March 12, 2023,” the organizers said.
