Invitation - Protest against Mass Killings of Rohingya in Northern Arakan/Rakhine State, Burma/Myanmar 

From 25th August Myanmar army and police forces have been carrying out indiscriminate killing of Rohingya civilians, torching and wholesale destruction of their homes and villages. More than 3,000 Rohingyas, mostly old men, women and children were massacred, and at least 31 Rohingya villages were burned down in the township of Maungdaw, Buthidaung and Rathedaung in Rakhine State. As of Today more than 100,000 Rohingya are internally displaced causing a great humanitarian disaster. Due to curfew order, blockade and extensive destruction of foodstuff and essentials, there is an acute shortage of food, medicine, and other necessities. The situation is exponentially worsening.

The Rohingya Community in the EU is holding a demonstration in front of the office of UN Human Rights Commission in Geneve Switzerland to urge the UN Security Council to discuss promptly the ongoing Genocide and to take a meaningful decision so that the Government of Myanmar stops the unprecedented campaign of terror, brutality and Genocide. Furthermore the decision of UNSC assures all the people of different faith in Burma, Rohingya of Arakan in particular of protection. 

We would like to invite you to join with us and raise your voice to protect Rohingya lives in Arakan. Thank you so much.

Please show your solidarity with us.

Date : 5th September 2017 (Tuesday)
