The Declaration From The First Rohingya Conference In The USA On The Rohingyas Of Burma (Myanmar)
The 1-day human rights conference on the plight of the Rohingya people of Myanmar – “Stop Genocide and Restore Rohingya’s Citizenship Rights in Myanmar”, held in the campus of University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee on December 14, 2013 passed the following resolutions:
1. The Rohingya people, who mostly live in the western Rakhine state of Myanmar, are the most persecuted people in our time.
2. The tragic events unraveling since May 28, 2012 have made it obvious that the Rohingya people are victims of eight stages of genocide – Classification, Symbolization, Dehumanization, Organization, Polarization, Preparation, Extermination and Denial, as clearly documented by Professor Gregory H. Stanton, President of Genocide Watch.
