My question for Indonesian Government. Why can these extremist Islamic terrorists openly threaten to break into the building (Burmese Embassy) and (THREATEN TO) turn it upside down. And why don’t they got arrested. We all the Burmese must protest against this with Indonesia government. Government of Burma should lodge official complaint against this terrorist act of Islamic Extremists. International community including UN, UK, USA, ASEAN and EU should denounce this terrorist act violating DIPLOMATIC protection.
Indonesian Islamic hardliners vow jihad for Rohingyas
JAKARTA — Hundreds of Islamic hardliners protested outside the Myanmar embassy in the Indonesian capital Jakarta on Friday to “stop the genocide” of Rohingya Muslims in the wake of deadly communal unrest.
Around 300 hardliners from organisations, including the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) and Jemaah Anshorut Tauhid (JAT), threatened to storm the Myanmar embassy in Jakarta as some 50 police officers guarded the building.
“If embassy officials refuse to talk with us, I demand all of you break into the building and turn it upside down,” a leader on a loudspeaker told protesters, who shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is Greatest).
“Every drop of blood that is shed from a Muslim must be paid back. Nothing is free in this world,” the man shouted, as protesters carried banners that read “FPI is ready to wage jihad”.
The aid of World Food Programme (WFP) which is giving the provisions for the refugees in Arakan State is rejected by the abbot of Shwe Zay De (Golden Pagoda) monastery in Sittwe where the victims live, on July (7) according by a person who closes to the abbot.
Why the abbot have rejected that is assuming the WFP gives more preference to Bengali than the Arakan people, however they help to account for the refugee in Arakan State.
“The Monasteries from Maung Taw also do not accept. It is good for doing that because they can comprehend. But it is not responsible for the Sittwe Branch. The UN have specified the Rohingya is the oppressed people in the world. We have to destroy first for that. The aware people must dare to explain at UN. Bangladesh said that Rohingya are not their nationality and they are also unacceptable. Why Myanmar don’t dare to say. It is not the same condition of the previous military administration. No need to afraid of the pressure of international countries. Now this happen is clear,” Ko Myo Thar Ki said.
The refugee camp in Maung Taw also has rejected the aid of WFP and other NGOs. Some NGOs help the Bengali by indirect way however they are saying support for the victims in Arakan State. There were the proofs that not help for the Arakan people although they were helping in repairing the roads and the building for Bengali. To consider that happen, the Arakan refugee camps are not accepting the aid from some NGOs.
There are over (400) victims in the camp of Shwe Zay De monastery in Sittwe. As the abbot rejected the aid from WFP yesterday evening, the aid have been taken from the monastery after arriving.
10.july 2012 In demand of about (80) workers for their rights in three pagodas pass in Kya In Seik Gyi Township, Karen State, the local authority didn’t give any help, according by a factory worker who participates in protest.
“I am a worker from PIA trading women brassiere factory in Three Pagodas Pass at Thai site. The problem started from owner didn’t give for compensation to the workers but they gave information about when the factory has been closed.

PIA Trading Myanmar workers demanded for their rights by law to the employer. Thai and Myanmar local authorities negotiated with the worker representatives for workers’ demand.
“They called three of us but they didn’t allow discussing in their meeting. They are discussing with themselves. We didn’t get chance to submit. Thai said that they can’t undertakes this problem as we are Myanmar workers who don’t have any Thai ID card and also are not legal workers. They can’t do to get compensation for workers. If we have Thai ID cards they will submit,” the employee delegate said.
Myanmar official, Township administrator warned to stop protesting once again. As PIA Trading Myanmar workers haven’t gotten their compensation, they are facing with the problem of living as well as the jobless.
“We are now facing the problem of living. We have to rent the room. We have to pay fees for rent, electricity bill and water bill by monthly. Some room costs (800) Baht and some costs (1000) Baht. The total cost for one month is maximum (1200) Baht. Where can we get this amount money? The salaries is not enough already before. So, we have to demand on this chance,” the employee of PIA Trading who are including in protesting said.
Most of Myanmar employees went and worked for one day around to the Factories in Three Pagodas Pass at Thai site. Some are staying at factories. Myanmar workers are working at the shoe factory, the clothing factory and handiwork factory. There are the total factories (21) which (400) employees can work for each factories. There are about (80) factories for handiwork which have the employees of (80) and (100). Over (20,000) Myanmar employees are working in those factories.
Myanmar workers are often protesting for increasing wages, overtime fee and compensation. There is still the problem of increasing wages however some problems are over. The Myanmar authorities who collect dues from the employees didn’t give any help in this process that the employees said.
