Rohingya: The Human Story

 Remember Rohingya
 
Restless Beings has prepared a media statement 

on behalf of community organizations and business to ask media to end the  blackout from Burma on this issue and  to report according to international standards without bias. 
To support, email your business/organization/network logo to: rohingya@restlessbeings.org  
A special event for press and limited guests:
This event will look at the human stories behind recent clashes and the ensuing state-led campaign against the Rohingya in Burma.
Monday 23 July 2012, 6.30pm - 8pm
Brady Arts and Community Centre
192-196 Hanbury Street
London
E1, 5HU.
Space is limited, for more information and to register for this free event click here.
On Monday,  July 23, 2012 (same day as the press conference), there will be an international tweet up on Twitter.  Go to @RestlessBeings.
The tweet up is between 6 - 11pm UK time. The more people tweeting, the more chance of getting the topic trending to grab media attention.
Described by the UN as the most persecuted community in the world, the struggle of the Rohingya is largely unknown. 
Help give a voice to one of the most marginalized communities in the world: #SOSRohingya
The ethnic cleansing campaign of the Rohingya in Burma demands mainstream coverage. Human rights activists and advocates, please spread the word. 


This community is being killed.
