Flyer for Rally in Support of Peace in Burma.

From SALAAM MEDIA ADVISORY:

Muslim community and our partners are organizing a rally to protest the Burma military’s genocidal attacks on the Rohingya people.

The Rohingya are indigenous people of Burma living in their ancestral lands.

Their citizenship was revoked in 1982 by a military regime. The UN consider the Rohingya to be the world’s most persecuted people.

The current attacks have forced 290,000 Rohingya to flee to Bangladesh according to the UN. The UN also says that it is not allowed to serve food, water, and medicine to about 400,000 other Rohingya people who have fled to mountains and forest within Burma to avoid persecution. The Burma military attacks worsen as they have recently laid mines on the Bangladesh-Burma border preventing Rohingya to reach safe haven in Bangladesh.
