A peaceful demonstration was held on 24th of September at Townhall, Sydney, Australia was organized by Pakistani community in Australia where former Australian foreign minister and NSW premier Bob Carr along with Greens Senator Lee Rhiannon joined in the protest including other community members.



Since Friday 25 September 2017 Myanmar military force, supported by local extreme Rakhine Buddhists and the government, who are allegedly claiming to be fighting armed Rohingyan forces, have been massacring and killing innocent Rohingyan Muslims. Al-Jazeera reported on the 26th of August that the Myanmar military forces are shooting indiscriminately at innocent Rohingyan civilians, including elders, women and children.


1.  Rohingya issue is an international issue, not Myanmar's internal affairs.

2. Rohingya lives are at stake, more than 430,000 become refugees in Bangladesh, over 214 villages burnt down, more than 9000 to 10,000 Rohingya civilians killed.

3. Myanmar military not stopping, and the western world has arms trade with the military. So armed embargo is important.

5. The military has history of ethnic cleansing of Rohingya since 1978 till today.

6. The Rakhine extremists are used to burnt down houses and kill Rohingya civilians during this operations.

7. The military is using Aung San Suu Kyi as shield to avoid the international pressure or prosecution on their actions on Rohingya.

8. Aung San Suu Kyi has defended the military or not condemned the ongoing genocide against the Rohingya people during her speech.

9. Australia as regional powerhouse has important responsibility to stop the genocide and pressure Myanmar, and take an example to defend human rights, and help Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh where more than 200,000 are children and among them 14,000 children are without parents as they lost their families in the ongoing genocide in Arakan state Myanmar.

10.  Australia must put sanction on Myanmar particularly on military, and their families and cronies.

It's quite obvious that International community, UN's pressure on Myanmar government is not working as Rohingya villages are still being burnt by Myanmar military everyday in Arakan state, Myanmar. So we urge UN intervention and to exercise UN's R2P urgently in Arakan state and Rohingya people who became refugees in Bangladesh are in terrible situation and humanitarian cricis right now especially in Shaparirdwip, Teknaf, Bangladesh.

Therefore we request all countries including all powerful countries UK, USA, Australia, China, Russia, Germany, France and OIC to join with Bangladesh to improve the humanitarian crisis of helpless and victims of genocide, the Rohingya people from Arakan state, Myanmar.

Since Friday 25 September 2017 Myanmar military force, supported by local extreme Rakhine Buddhists and the government, who are allegedly claiming to be fighting armed Rohingyan forces, have been massacring and killing innocent Rohingyan Muslims. Al-Jazeera reported on the 26th of August that the Myanmar military forces are shooting indiscriminately at innocent Rohingyan civilians, including elders, women and children.

Recent reports have indicated that the situation has worsened in the past few days. Despite the

International Community’s pressure on Myanmar government, the genocide is still ongoing and villages

are being burned down every day in an attempt to systematically eradicate the Rohingya race.

A field worker for the Action Contre Le Faim (ACF), based in Buthidaung has reported the following.

 Around 9,000 to 10,000 innocent Rohingya civilians have been killed.

 At least 183 Rohingya villages have been burned down and satellite images are a clear indication

of this.

 More than 400,000 Rohingyas have fled to Bangladesh for survival.

 More than 200,000 Rohingyas are internally displaces, including a majority of them hiding in

forests and mountains without any food or shelter.

 The ACF field worker has reported to witness at least 2000 fleeing Rohingya men to be

slaughtered brutally.

We would like to stress the fact that fatality figures supplied by the Myanmar Government are

propaganda and biased. There is little or no access by independent media to the affected region. They

underestimate the deaths by a significant order of magnitude in order to deflect international attention.

The figures provided by Myanmar are not to be used at all as that would be a denial of genocide. We urge

the Australian Government and the International Community to immediately condemn and put an end to

this ongoing massacre of innocent Rohingya civilians.

The Myanmar Government are blatantly disregarding expressions of concern and condemnation by the

entire world. We urge that sanctions be put in place immediately in an order to pressurize the Myanmar

government to end the killings of these helpless Rohingyas, and also pressurize them to allow aid access,

media access and UN fact-finding mission access.

In the past week there have been demonstrations in Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne to raise awareness

of this issue.

Given the emergency state for our people in Arakan State, Myanmar, we ask the Australian Government

to help us. These are the requests of the Rohingyan community in Australia.



 We urge the Myanmar Government to immediately stop the ethnic cleansing of innocent Rohingyas in Arakan state,Myanmar.

 We urge the UN to intervene and immediately end the massacre of innocent Rohingya civilians.

 We urge the Australian Government to immediately pressurize the Myanmar Government to end

the ongoing genocide of innocent Rohingyas.

 We urge the Bangladeshi Government to provide food and shelter to the helpless Rohingya

fleeing violence in Myanmar.

 We urge the UN to intervene and provide security for the surviving Rohingyas in Arakan State,

Myanmar.

 We urge the Myanmar Government to allow immediate aid access for the displaced Rohingyas in

Arakan State, Myanmar.

 We urge the Myanmar Government to allow independent media access into Arakan State,

Myanmar.

 We urge the Myanmar Government to allow immediate access to the UN fact-finding missions

into Arakan State, Myanmar.

 We urge the Myanmar Government that Kofi Annan’s peace treaty be implemented.

 We urge the Australian Government implement immediate sanctions on Australia’s Aid Program

to Myanmar, as part of the agreement was to maintain peace and stability especially pertaining to

ethnic tensions.

 We urge to increase the numbers of Rohingya refugees accepted into Australia.

 We urge to speed up the processing of refugees.

A peaceful demonstration was held on 4th of September 2017 in front of the Australian Parliament House, Canberra, Australia, was organized by BRCA combining with other two Rohingya organizations such as Burmese Rohingya Association in Queensland-Australia (BRAQA) and Queensland Rohingya Community (QRC) to raise a collective voice against the Myanmar military force.

 



Since Friday 25 September 2017 Myanmar military force, supported by local extreme Rakhine Buddhists and the government, who are allegedly claiming to be fighting armed Rohingyan forces, have been massacring and killing innocent Rohingyan Muslims. Al-Jazeera reported on the 26th of August that the Myanmar military forces are shooting indiscriminately at innocent Rohingyan civilians, including elders, women and children.

The following are some facts of the recent events in one week:

● About 3000 Rohingyan civilians have been reported to be killed in the past week. Many more have been massacred but were not reported due to media restrictions.

● More than 35 villages have been burnt down by the Myanmar military where civilians were also set alight and the remaining survivors of these villages have been displaced.

● Many families trying to return to their villages have been shot at and are forced to hide in the forests for safety, without any food or shelter.

● More than 50,000 Rohingyan civilians fled to Bangladesh escaping the massacre.

Therefore, we urge Australian government, international community, INGOs, UN, and other countries to pressurize Myanmar government to stop ongoing massacre and genocide in Arakan state Myanmar.

DW Interview with Phil Robertson
OCTOBER 6, 2014

Burma recently confirmed to the United Nations that it is on the verge of completing a plan that would grant Rohingya Muslims citizenship if they change their ethnicity to suggest Bangladeshi origin.

Foreign Minister Wunna Maung Lwin told AP that his government has started a "verification process" to enable the mostly stateless minority who has been in Myanmar for many generations to become naturalized citizens. But he says the government is still not recognizing the Rohingya as a group.
