Lawyers will be observing black day across the country today to mark their protest against the former president Pervez Musharraf's steps of imposing emergency and sacking of the judiciary one year ago on November 3. The newly elected President of Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) Ali Ahmed Kurd has said that the lawyers' movement will continue till the reinstatement of the deposed chief justice, Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and other judges. The lawyers are observing the black day on November 3 to mark protest against the 'unconstitutional steps' taken one year back by the former president. They will stage a sit-in on Shahra-e-Dastoor in Islamabad. The SCBA President on Sunday described November 3, 2007 as the blackest day in the country's history and vowed to take the lawyers' movement to its logical conclusion. "The result of the recent SCBA elections speak volumes about what the lawyers really want," Ali Ahmed Kurd said, adding the future course of the movement will be announced after holding consultations with the lawyers. A large rally will also be taken out in Rawalpindi while a joint general body meeting of various lawyers' associations will be held in Karachi which will be addressed by Justice (Retd.) Wajihuddin Ahmed. The general body meeting will be followed by a sit-in on M.A. Jinnah Road in which representatives of civil society, political parties and labour unions have also been invited. Separate meetings of lawyers will be held in Lahore Bar and High Court Bar at 9 AM. This will be followed by a lawyers rally to be taken out from Aiwan-e-Adl to Punjab Assembly. Peshawar High Court and District Bar Associations have also announced to observe black day on November 3 and to boycott routine business of the courts. Lawyers will also rally in Peshawar to register their protest.
