Over 100 Arakanese have held a demonstration protesting against the UN and INGOs on Sunday

Yangon: Over 100 Arakanese have held a demonstration protesting against the UN and INGOs on Sunday marching along the street in Rangoon holding banners and placards.


“We held a demonstration on Sunday morning, marching from Central Street in San Chaung Township through Shin Saw Pu Street up to Pyiy Street. Over 100 people, some wearing our campaign T shirts, participated in our demonstration”, said Ko Se Thu, one of the organizers.

About 50 of the demonstrators wore T-shirts that read “We love Justice, UN/INGO Stop Discriminations against Arakanese”, while holding placards and banners that read “Don’t Bring Terrorism to Our Land” and “Stop Creating Conflicts in Arakan”, etc.

Ko Se Thu said, “We have held this demonstration because the UN and other INGOs operating in Arakan State are unfair and are perpetuating discrimination against the Arakanese people.”

He said the police forces served as security for the demonstrators during the procession because they had been granted official
permission to hold the demonstration peacefully from the authorities.

The demonstrators are also said to have made eight-point demands to the UN and INGOs that are operating in Arakan State during their demonstration.

Their demands are: (1) To stop discrimination against the Arakanese People, (2) To comply with the President’s decisions, (3) To respect the sovereignty of Burma, (4) To stop creating conflicts in Arakan State, (5) To stop bringing terrorism to Arakan State, (6) To stop abusing the citizens while encouraging the illegal immigrants in Arakan State, (7) To stop unfair activities and (8) To stop abusing the rights of citizens in Arakan State.

“Many journalists came to our demonstration  and the officials of the UNHCR and other INGOs have witnessed our demonstration as well”, said Ko Se Thu.

The demonstration began at 11.30 and was concluded at midday.

CALL @ THESE INGOS CALLING CHANGING CITIZENSHIP LAW FOR Bengali Rohingyas

BDC Burma@ We would like to call for all the ORGANISATIONS calling for BURMA to change 1982 Citizenship law to also call for their respective governments to CHANGE their respective citizenship laws. Please see the case study of UK immigration law. UK Immigration department (UKBA) says you cannot be a BRITISH citizen EVEN if you were born in the UK to parents who are not British citizens and are not legally settled in UK. Even if you were born in the United Kingdom, you will not be a British citizen if neither of your parents was a British citizen or legally settled here at the time of your birth. This means you are not a British citizen if, at the time of your birth, your parents were in the country temporarily, had stayed on without permission, or had entered the country ILLEGALLY and had not been given permission to stay here indefinitely. Before you all say something to other nation’s affair, look at your own nations’ immigration laws.

Why don’t we do the group called BRINGING ALL ROHINGYA STATELESS PEOPLE FROM BURMA TO UK which will lobby UK Government to change UK citizenship law, respect human rights and grant UK citizenship.
