The conference was originally scheduled for 20-23rd March 2007. It was postponed to take part effectively in the advocate’s movement. The decision paid off. LPP participation in the advocate movement is very well appreciated by many among the movement. Several comrades were arrested during the movement and LPP took part in almost all the demonstrations of the advocate movement across the country.

The conference was then scheduled for second time on 9/10/11th November 2007, but this had to be postponed due to the large scale arrests of the political activists after General Musharaf declared emergency on 3rd November.
