The Rohingya Muslim minority in Myanmar have been termed by the United Nations as the most persecuted minority in the world;
Thirty to forty percent of the Rohingya population has now been ethnically cleansed into Bangladesh and, on the current trajectory, we can expect the entire population to be ethnically cleansed by the end of the year;
The Rohingya of Myanmar are victims of ethnic cleansing, rape, violence and constant persecution in their homeland;
Canada is a country that claims to stand for human rights and the protection of persecuted and endangered minorities;
Foreign powers can play an integral role in halting the Myanmar military’s crackdown on the Rohingya people.; and
The international community must put pressure on countries, namely, China, Russia, Israel, Ukraine, and India to stop providing arms to the Myanmar military.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Prime Minister to:
1) Make a commitment to allow stateless Rohingya refugees into Canada;
2) Issue a plea in Parliament that countries stop providing arms to the Myanmar military;
3) Put forward a UN General Assembly resolution calling on countries to stop providing arms to the Myanmar military; and
4) Revoke Aung San Suu Kyi's honorary Canadian citizenship.
