A CNN and BBC article originally alerted me to this, but it seems there's a quasi-genocide happening across the world with most people currently ignorant to it.
It's sickening and OUTRAGING that there are still people out there who impose such misery on their fellow human beings.
What do you think should be done about this? This is an example of where viewing people as subjects of nation-states fails since an individual lacking an official nationality shouldn't deprive that individual of fundamental rights. I think the United States needs to impose sanctions on the Rahkine until they stop their idiotic and putrid behavior towards the Rohingya. To make things worse, Aung San Suu Kyi, someone who I had previously thought to be an untainted voice of reason and democracy in the region, seems less than sympathetic towards the plight of the Rohingya. I suppose I was expecting too much from someone who is really just a glorified politician. She will not stand up for what is right because that would endanger her political career.
It's up to the rest of us to stand up for the underdog.
