A Voice for the Voiceless Peace Rally: Silence is Betrayal
Injustice anywhere, is a threat to justice everywhere.
The world is witnessing a state-orchestrated genocide of Rohingya Muslims. This is an ongoing and never ending tragedy noted for the unparalleled medieval brutality. In the last 2 months alone, close to 500,000 people were forced to flee and seek refuge in Bangladesh. These are the lucky ones. Their stories are horrific. Parents slaughtered in front of their children, systematic rape and sexual torture, the destruction of whole villages. Yet the unlucky ones are the million Rohingya muslims who are still in Burma. They have no access to UN representatives and/or any humanitarian organizations.
Our repeated pledge of "never again " must have some meaning.
"The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people, but the silence by the good people".
We must raise our voices for those who have no voice.
**PLEASE BRING SIGNS TO HELP SPEAK OUT FOR OUR ROHINGYA FRIENDS**
