Joint Statement on International Human Rights Day 2015
A Call to End Killing Tragedies, Atrocities, Human Rights Violations in Arakan and to Promote Peace & Stability in the Country
We, the undersigned organizations warmly salute the International Human Rights Day 2015.
But the entire people in Arakan State, Burma, particularly the Rohingya ethnic minorities are highly concerned for their safety and want to live in peace and harmony in their ancestral homeland.
Since the day of sectarian violence against the ethnic indigenous Rohingya in Burma, there has been a gross violation of human rights where over 140,000 Rohingya now live in the Internally Displaced People's camps (IDP) while thousands of other ethnic minorities live below poverty.
