RAS MUBARAK, KWESI PRATT JNR, IRBARD IBRAHIM MARCH AGAINST ROHINGYA GENOCIDE
“As the world commemorates International Day of Peace and Democracy, we are all dazed by the brutality with which the Government of Myanmar is slaughtering innocent Rohingya women, children and the aged. What is happening in Myanmar against Rohingya Muslims is a grotesque violation of human rights. The world cannot continue to be silent about it.
To this end, the Freedom and Justice Group and the good people of Ghana who believe in the right to life of all minorities around the world, will undertake a peaceful march against the human rights violations and the sale of weapons to that Government by Israel on Monday 18th September from 8am at the Obra Spot at Circle, Accra and end at Hearts Park, near the Arts Center. A select few will then deliver a petition to the Israeli Embassy.
We call on Canada, which conferred an Honorary Canadian Citizenship on the Myanmar leader to revoke her Canadian citizenship. We also call on the Nobel Committee in Oslo, which conferred the highest honor of a Nobel Peace Prize winner in 1991, to as a matter of urgency, revoke the Peace Prize awarded to Ms Suu Kyi, as her actions cannot be the embodiment of a peace prize winner.
The world cannot afford another Holocaust and what is happening now is the vile murder of a persecuted minority group.
We wish to commend the Government of Turkey, under His Excellency, Recep Tayyib Erdogan for the leadership Turkey has demonstrated in dealing with the crises in Myanmar.
Ghana cannot be left out in condemning the genocide and those providing weapons to the Burmese Army. The government of Ghana should make a strong case to the United Nations, against the unfolding genocide in Myanmar and should take further steps in encouraging the Security Council of the United Nations to take immediate action against Myanmar.
It is morally wrong for the world to turn a blind eye to what is going on in Myanmar. Let’s come out to speak for humanity.
