When Burma falls, the world will remember the mass killings
Posted On August 1, 2021
Posted December 13, 2017 06:03:00 Burma’s government is about to face a crisis of legitimacy and a crisis in leadership, as the country’s leaders face the consequences of a crackdown on the Rohingya.
It’s a grim and dangerous time for the Rohingya, who have been living in the country since the mid-1990s.
But for the Burmese, it’s also a moment of opportunity, when the world can finally remember what happened.
The violence that followed the June 2017 genocide of more than 1,000 Rohingya Muslims by Myanmar’s military unleashed a new wave of anger and despair in the Rohingya community, which had been fleeing violence.
Since then, the military has launched a vicious campaign against the Rohingya population, and many of them have fled the country.
They’re living in refugee camps and in Bangladesh.
In response to the genocide, the government, backed by the military, cracked down on the community, arresting, torturing, and even killing those who tried to flee.
The crackdown is known as the “Rohingya Question,” and it has been met with widespread condemnation.
The U.N. has called for the “immediate and unconditional release of all Rohingya people” from the camps, and President-elect Donald Trump has ordered the U.S. State Department to ensure that all Rohingya refugees have safe passage out of the country before they face any form of persecution.
The situation has been deteriorating rapidly in recent weeks, as more and more people have fled Myanmar to escape the violence, according to the U,S.
Department of State.
The State Department reported that “at least 12,000 people, including 3,500 Rohingya, have been displaced since the beginning of December, and that many more have been forcibly displaced since mid-May.”
“We are continuing to assess the situation,” said a State Department official.
“We believe there is significant human rights concern regarding the rights of the Rohingya people.”
The U.K. Foreign Office said it was “aware of reports of the arrest of a number of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh” and urged the authorities to “immediately provide safe passage for those who have fled to Bangladesh.”
The United States also urged “all parties to respect the right to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly in Burma and all other nations in the region, and the right of refugees to seek protection and resettlement wherever they may be.”
It was a tough decision for the U of A, but it’s a good one.
It makes it clear that the U is not going to tolerate attacks on the rights and dignity of people who fled violence and persecution.
And it sends a clear message to those who continue to harass and attack the Rohingya that we will not tolerate their continued violations of human rights and the rights to freedom, safety, and dignity.
