Rohingya Muslims: murdered, starved, silenced

To President Thein Sein:

As concerned citizens from across the globe, we urge you to stay true to your pledge and grant more rights to the Rohingya muslims. Thousands of people have either died or been displaced, and the only solution to stop this ongoing violence is through your strong leadership to provide protection, more aid and grant citizenship to the Rohingya. Slaughtering families based on religion is wrong, and the world is counting on you to stand up for what’s right.

Rohingya Muslims: murdered, starved, silenced
Days ago, 7 year-old Fatimah died of dehydration, cast out and neglected by her home country of Burma. And she’s not alone -- thousands of Rohingya Muslims are starving to death or even murdered because of their religion and ethnicity. But we can force Burma’s President to save the Rohingya.

The situation is turning more desperate every day -- recent violence killed scores and over 100,000 Rohingya have been forced into cramped refugee camps with little food, dirty water and no sanitation. Burmese leader Thein Sein is wavering on his promises to tackle the crisis, but a major investment summit is coming up, and the last thing he wants is to be shamed by his scandalous inaction -- if we all join in, we can get him to bring justice to the Rohingya Muslims.

We don't have much time left -- sign the petition calling on President Thein Sein to give the Rohingya citizenship and equal rights, and guarantee that aid reaches those in need. When we gather 50,000 signatures, Avaaz will deliver our message to leading regional and international media outlets and Burma's key government partners attending the summit.
