The Pakistanis of Karachi are one of the most vocal in demanding their government’s complete withdrawal from the country.
They have also taken to the streets to voice their anger over corruption and injustice in the city.
The protests have become a daily occurrence in the Pakistani capital, and have been met with brutal police repression.
“We have taken our children out to school.
The police are using their weapons to disperse us,” said Sajid, a 23-year-old who requested to be identified only by his first name.
He said he had been a resident of Karachi for just over three months and had come to protest after the death of his brother.
He told VICE News that he had come from the northwestern city of Miranshah, where a string of recent murders took place.
“We want the government to withdraw from Karachi,” he said.
“The city is our home.
The government is doing nothing for us.
We have no rights.”
“The police are trying to intimidate us with false accusations,” said Faraz, a 24-year old who was visiting Karachi with his wife and son.
“They’re using the slogan of ‘Kashmir is ours’.
They’re attacking us.
They are targeting us for no reason.”
Faraz said he was particularly angry at the government for failing to investigate allegations of human rights abuses by Pakistani security forces, especially in the wake of the assassination of the country’s chief prosecutor, Nazir Ahmed.
He has also been protesting for weeks against the arrest of two women who were arrested for filming a police raid on a house they were renting.

They say they are protesting against corruption and violence, and are also angry at corruption that has led to Pakistan becoming a narco-state.
In a country where most people have not earned a living, they have no power to demand their government change its ways.
The recent wave of protests is just the latest manifestation of this frustration, as millions of Pakistanis continue to suffer from economic deprivation and inequality.
As protests spread across the country, the government has made little effort to calm them, and in a country that is home to more than 80 percent of the world’s population, the country has not been immune to violence.
On January 15, a protestor was killed in the southwestern city of Quetta.
That same day, two people were killed in a similar attack in the provincial capital, Lahore.
In a country notorious for its sectarian violence, the recent spate of violence has heightened fears that the violence could spill over into a wider civil war.
The violence has not only prompted the government’s withdrawal from Pakistan, but has also fueled public anger and led to the arrest and imprisonment of prominent politicians, journalists, and political activists.
The violence is seen as an attempt by the Pakistani Taliban to take over the country from the government, and some in the country believe the government is deliberately stoking the flames of discontent.
“Pakistan is going to fall into a civil war in the next few months,” said Abdul Qayyum, a professor of political science at Islamabad University.
“This is not just a military takeover, it’s an economic takeover.”
According to the UN, there are approximately 8 million people in Pakistan.
While it is unclear exactly how many of them are protesting, analysts say they represent a small minority.
The country’s population is divided between a majority Shiite majority, a minority Sunni minority, and a growing number of ethnic minorities.
In Pakistan, the majority of Pakistan’s 1.3 billion people are either of Pakistani origin or are Pakistani citizens.
Pakistan’s security forces have responded to protests with lethal force, killing and maiming demonstrators in the past.
According to Amnesty International, more than 7,000 people have been killed in protests in Pakistan since 2002.
Tensions between the Pakistani government and the protestors have escalated in recent months, with police often firing tear gas and stun grenades at crowds of people.
On December 10, Pakistani security officials said that the government had arrested at least six people in connection with a protest in the capital, Islamabad.
On February 12, Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi declared a state of emergency and said security forces would crack down on protesters.
According in a recent report by Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, the Pakistan government is failing to address a series of serious human rights violations, including arbitrary arrests, torture, arbitrary detention, and extrajudicial killings.
The UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, Salil Shetty, said the government in Islamabad had failed to address the human rights situation.
“These incidents have resulted in an increase in the use of torture and ill-treatment against the most vulnerable
