From Diplomat Artist Buzz: It is worth reminding that underlying the plight of refugees is in too many cases a disregard or worse of the human rights of those who flee. –MORE–
Promising update from Susan Sacirbey: On December 4, 2014, Resolution 586, a resolution Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey authored urging the Government of Burma to end the persecution and discrimination against the Rohingya, including restrictions on their movement, and lack of access to health care, education and economic opportunities was agreed to in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The resolution expresses the Senate’s grave concern about the humanitarian and human rights crisis facing the Rohingya in Burma, Bangladesh, Thailand and elsewhere in Southeast Asia. Menendez believes the Burmese government must account for its total failure to provide the most basic protections to the Rohingya who have been subjected to a campaign of ethnic cleansing. “We must call on all of the governments of the region — many of whom are tacitly allowing the inhumane treatment of the Rohingya — to take necessary measures to end the discrimination, exploitation and abuse of the Rohingya and to respect their fundamental human rights.”
If you’re a member of Burma’s ethnic minorities (Rohingya, Kachin) the reality is even more bleak when it comes to human rights, education, & healthcare. WHY are western governments complicit in genocide by their silence in calling the Myanmar Government to accountability & for removal of Doctors Without Borders from administering healthcare to Rohingya? WHY?
” Northern Rakhine – home to 80% of the country’s 1 million long-persecuted Muslim Rohingya population – runs along the Bay of Bengal and is cut off from the rest of the country by a mountain range.”
ARE THEY HUMAN WHO DESERVE THE RESPECT or NOT? Have many children are concerned?
We know, Ms A.S.S.K is planning for the Presidency. FIRST FEMALE PRESIDENT OF MYANMAR/BURMA.
My be, She is also dreaming about Her 2 boys born overseas could bear THE BURMESE CITIZENSHIP, looking in amendment of the present constitution.
But, What had she been doing for OTHER BURMA CHILDREN?
In fact, when some Children were/are Rohingya of Ethnic group born in Myanmar/Burma. They are denied Burmese citizenship.
I admit, I like Ms ASSK, for all her past points, but disagree with her ignorance’s for other Burma children, mainly when they are Rohingya.
