jilloverevolution WE ARE THE VOICES OF THE UNHEARD: The Rohingya are a Muslim minority in predominantly Buddhist Myanmar that has been systematically denied the most elemental rights: citizenship, freedom of worship, education, marriage and travel. Tens of thousands of the Rohingya were driven from their homes by violence in 2012; last year many tried to flee persecution and deprivation in desperate sea voyages.

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi — Myanmar’s leader and #nobelpeaceprize Prize laureate — does not want to call them Rohingya, the name they use, because nationalist Buddhists want to perpetuate the myth that they are “Bengalis” who don’t belong in Myanmar. She has also asked the United States ambassador not to use the term. Her advice is wrong and deeply disappointing. The Rohingya are every bit as #Burmese as she is.

There are many possible reasons Ms. #AungSanSuuKyi — whose 15 years under house arrest made her one of the world’s best known and most respected political prisoners — might be reluctant to publicly embrace the Rohingya cause. It has been barely a month since she became leader of Myanmar’s first democratically elected government since 1962, with the title of state counselor, and she no doubt fears antagonizing the Buddhist nationalists who angrily demonstrated outside the United States Embassy in late April after the embassy referred to the “Rohingya community” in a letter of condolence for Rohingya victims of a boat sinking.

Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi may fear that publicly calling these people by their name would upset the national reconciliation process, as a Foreign Ministry official said, or worse: that it would rekindle the terrible violence that erupted in 2012 between Buddhists and Rohingya Muslims in western Rakhine State. #rohingya #rohingyamuslim #saverohingya #humanity #humanrights #activism #artivism #riseup #truth #truthseekers #enough #revolution #revolutionnow #weareone #children #savethechildren #myanmar #burma #buddhism #buddhist #wearethevoicesoftheunheard #jilloverevolution

haterholocaust Aung San Suu Kyi
#aungsansuukyi

  •   helix058 Hoping Kerry will find it in him to say it. 4d
  •   chenaphun He did say it, but only after she did @helix058. 4d
  •   helix058 Figures. I was wishing that he would say it first since the US gov had made it look like they might be willing to address the plight of the Rohingya and other minorities. Shame that ASSK won't risk her popularity in Myanmar to do what is right. 4d

다시 꺼내어 읽은 "아웅산수치평전"
버어마(미얀마)는 현재 민주화진행중.
여성으로서 강한리더 아웅산수치여사!
우리나라도 올바른 원칙, 소신있는
강한 리더쉽이 있는 여성인이 필요하다고
가끔 느낄때가 있다.
