San Jose Protest against Hazara Killings

This Martin Luther King Day over 150 protesters gathered at the San Jose City Hall to remember victims of terrorist attacks in Pakistan in general and of Quetta blasts of January 10 in particular. The twin blasts on Alamdar Road in Quetta targeted Hazara Shias and claimed more than 100 lives.

Speakers at the vigil protested against routine Shia killings in Pakistan and spoke highly of the Hazaras of Quetta who, after the January 10 blasts, sat in open, in sub-zero temperatures, with the coffins of their family members and friends killed in the blasts, to register their peaceful protest.
The candlelight vigil organized by SABA Youth was attended by members of SABA (Shia Association of Bay Area) and other concerned citizens.
