5th Nov 2015 - Public Demonstration Calling For End of Genocide Against Rohingya
PUBLIC DEMONSTRATION CALLING FOR END OF GENOCIDE AGAINST ROHINGYA IN BURMA
Whilst Burma waits and is on the cusp of a general election in early November, the world waits with baited breath to see if life improves for the many ethnic groups of Burma who have faced decades of marginalization. The Rohingya, whom the UN has long claimed to be 'one of the most persecuted communities in the world', are not expecting any reprieve.
The recent Yale Law School and Fortify Rights report says it found strong evidence that genocide is occurring against the Rohingya in Burma. It concludes, "The mass scale of the atrocities perpetrated specifically against Rohingya also provides strong evidence that the Myanmar government has acted with genocidal intent toward the group."
A yearlong Al Jazeera report also claims that genocide has been enacted against the Rohingya in Rakhine State, Burma.
Restless Beings, Burmese Rohingya Organisation UK (BROUK), Burmese Muslim Association UK, Bradford Rohingya Community UK and Burma Campaign UK have joined arms and are calling out to supporters of the cause of human rights to join together and demonstrate at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office of UK to put political pressure and to take tangible steps to end the ongoing genocide against the Rohingya.
