Children hold a poster with a photograph of the leader of the landless peasant movement in Okara, the Anjuman-e-Mazareen (AMP), Mehr Abdul Sattar. Abdul Sattar was arrested in a police and Army Rangers raid on his village 4/4L on May 16th 2016. He was charged with concocted and fake charges of  'terrorism' and thrown into solitary confinement. He remains behind bars as lawyers and activists fight to have him released. Abdul Sattar has lead this movement for over sixteen years and the Pakistani military brass is getting increasingly frustrated, and resorting to greater violence and unjust use of the law, to attempt to break the movement.
