The violent persecution of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar at the hands of Burmese extremists, the military, police and politicians is seeing thousands of people injured, displaced and killed. They require urgent protection, assistance and humanitarian aid -- and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon can call for an immediate resolution to protect them.
Security forces along with Rakhine Buddhist groups are looting and burning Rohingya properties under Act 144. Police and groups of Rakhine have started arson attacks, looting properties, destroying houses and killing the innocent Rohingya children, women and men. Some reports indicate that thousands of their houses have burnt down, over 1000 people have been killed, and more than 3000 wounded and thousands more rendered homeless.
When they sought asylum in neighbouring Bangladesh and Thailand, they were rejected.
The photos and stories coming from Myanmar are shocking. But the story has attracted little attention in the international media. But UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon can call for an immediate resolution to condemn these killings and send UN peacekeepers to protect them. Sign the petition now!
