  • Malala calls for defence of Rohingya

The images we are seeing of the suffering of the Rohingya fill us with pain and dread.

Protesters also rallied outside Myanmar's embassy in Malaysia Friday urging Kuala Lumpur to sever diplomatic ties with Yangon over deadly violence against Rohingya Muslims.

Journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce, despite all the hardships we still do it, because we believe our perspective matters - because it might well be your perspective, too. We used to assume that she reflected the rare combination of Mahatma Gandhi and Mother Teresa. "But as always, Canadians stand ready to help".

Suu Kyi visited Ottawa last spring and had a closed-door meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Myanmar's government calls them Bengalis and considers them illegal migrants, even though many families have been in the country for generations.

President Rodrigo Duterte on Saturday slammed human rights advocates for their criticisms of his anti-drug war but ignored the sad plight of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.

Yet to ignore the constraints of the political matrix within which Suu Kyi is operating would be a mistake. Perhaps though, she's taken a look at other humanitarian crisis points, like Gaza, Uyghur or Kashmir, and is simply biding her time for the world to find something else to talk about. He called Suu Kyi out by name, as well as Trudeau for failing to stop the violence. The Tatmadaw doesn't want Myanmar to break up.

Giving citizenship to the Rohingya Muslims and taking them back from Bangladesh after "joint verification" are some of the key features of the Kofi Annan recommendation.

Nissan Leaf (2018) vs Tesla Model 3: the weigh
In Japan, it starts at 3.15 million yen ($29,000) with the most expensive version costing 3.99 million yen ($37,000). And if nothing else, it's a real upgrade for existing Leaf owners at a price that should prove tempting to many.

Aung San Suu Kyi is the country's civilian head, but she in not Commander-in-Chief of the military - a military that still has significant grips on the country's institutions, and complete control of all facets of defense, border control, and home affairs.

"We have never missed an opportunity to express our concerns on behalf of our government, but frankly, also on behalf of Canadians, who are watching what is happening over there and are expressing deep concern about the targeting of ethnic minorities, including the Rohingya".

Gatineau-based government relations and communications consultant Fareed Khan launched the petition on Monday. Instead, Suu Kyi created a new position, Myanmar's state counsellor, and signed up for a giant balancing act, one in which she'd have to satisfy an impatient electorate while keeping the generals appeased. "The cult of Aung San Suu Kyi was fabricated by elements in the Atlantic World establishment committed to imposing a US-led, New World Order which, of course, is only a slightly more neutral term for the neo-conservative plan to impose what they inaptly refer to as Pax Americana", Grossman said.

Myanmar's security forces have reportedly been attacking the Rohingya Muslims in a bid to push them out of the state of Rakhine.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan Civil Society Alliance (PCSA) has strongly condemned the brutal genocide of the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar at a protest outside the National Press Club on Thursday.

"The violence must end now". When a journalist said that the Myanmar government has claimed that the Rohingyas themselves were setting fire to houses, Robertson said: "oh, this is Burmese government propaganda". Her honorary Canadian citizenship must be revoked.

However, the organisation that oversees the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday said the 1991 prize awarded to Suu Kyi can not be revoked. "She must be held accountable and tried", said party spokesman KM Atiqur Rahman. I was one of the main people campaigning for her freedom. Raoul Wallenberg, Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama, the Aga Khan, and Malala Yousafzai are among its list of recipients.
