    The Rohingya people are desperately in need. In May 2012, sectarian violence broke out in Rakhine State between the Buddhist Rakhine people and the predominately Muslim Rohingya. Around 140,000 people remain displaced in and around Sittwe and Maungdaw by the violence. These people urgently need food, shelter, medicine and protection. Partners has been providing emergency relief to those in camps near Sittwe, including rice distribution, basic medical support, tarps for shelter as well as animals, seeds and fertilizer to help establish more sustainable food supply. PLEASE HELP provide continuing life-saving care to vulnerable children and families. Learn how you can help at http://rohingya.partnersworld.org

      They are branded as one of the most persecuted communities in the world by the UN, yet nobody knows their name. They are the forgotten people. In recent weeks, the escalating violence has displaced more than 90,000 Rohingya people. Villages are being burnt, people are being abducted, concentration camps are being created, women are being raped and children mercilessly killed. The persecution against the Rohingya can be described in no other terms but that of ethnic cleansing and genocide.

              Before Mohammed fled Burma, he was often stopped by the authorities on his way to school and sent to work in military camps. There he was made to cook, clean and carry heavy building materials, and he was punished when his captors were unhappy with his work. Persecuted by the authorities for being Muslim, one night Mohammed was offered an opportunity to escape to Thailand with his uncle. Around midnight, 29 people – all ethnic Rohingya – left by boat on what would be an 18-day journey. After three days, they ran out of drinking water and were forced to drink seawater, making them sick. Shortly after they arrived in Thailand they were arrested and sent to the Thai border city of Mae Sot where Mohammed would spend six months in immigration detention. Terrified of being sent back to Burma, beaten and left to die as his father was, Mohammed fled again. With his little remaining money he crossed into Cambodia and applied for asylum. Mohammed is typical of the many Muslim Rohingya refugees forced to flee their homes in western Burma. Forced labor, land confiscation, and restrictions on their freedom of movement and religious expression are common features of their lives. Excluded from accessing public health and education services and prevented from taking up employment, they are forced to live in destitution. In late 2009, Rohingyas started arriving in Cambodia; this more or less coincided with the implementation of new refugee procedures, transferring responsibility for status determination from the UN refugee agency to the Cambodian government. The Cambodian government has not yet resolved any applications from Rohingya asylum seekers. Regrettably, the new framework does not afford any formal rights to asylum seekers, leaving them in legal limbo, and at the mercy of government officials turning a blind eye to their employment in the informal labor market.

                    100 people joined a protest at the Germany Embassy in London today, protesting against Germany’s opposition to a UN Commission of Inquiry into war crimes and crimes against humanity in Burma. The protest was held on the 23rd anniversary of the 1988 pro-democracy uprising in Burma, where more than 3,000 people were massacred by the dictatorship. The UN Special Rapporteur on Burma has recommended an UN inquiry into possible war crimes and crimes against humanity. Germany is opposing the EU supporting a UN Inquiry. This is critical, as it is the EU which drafts the UN General Assembly resolution on Burma, which can include the establishment of a UN Inquiry. Guns used in the massacre on 8th August were supplied by Germany. Now Germany continues to assist the brutal dictatorship in Burma, opposing even a simple UN Inquiry into human rights abuses in the country. “The German government is protecting rapists and war criminals in Burma,” said Zoya Phan, Campaigns Manager at Burma Campaign UK. “A UN Inquiry could help reduce abuses in Burma, but Germany opposes it because it puts business before human rights. The price is likely to be paid by ethnic minority women being raped, and by political prisoners still in jail.”

                      "Bruma Still Burning" Following the outbreak of deadly intercommunal clashes in Rakhine State in 2012, anti-Muslim violence has spread to other parts of Myanmar. The depth of anti-Muslim sentiment in the country, and the inadequate response of the security forces, mean that further clashes are likely. Unless there is an effective government response and change in societal attitudes, violence could spread, impacting on Myanmar’s transition as well as its standing in the region and beyond. The violence has occurred in the context of rising Burman-Buddhist nationalism, and the growing influence of the monk-led “969” movement that preaches intolerance and urges a boycott of Muslim businesses. This is a dangerous combination: considerable pent-up frustration and anger under years of authoritarianism are now being directed towards Muslims by a populist political force that cloaks itself in religious respectability and moral authority . Physicians for Human Rights described attacks on Muslims, that have swept the country since fighting first broke out last year as “widespread and systematic,” in a report examining unrest that has killed around 250 people and left tens of thousands homeless. This version of Insight contains an interview with Ibrahim Shah , editor of Burmatimes who joined us from Jeddah , Saudi Arabia...
