: Genocide in Myanmar - Day of Solidarity with Rohingyas

1936 25 Ave NE, Calgary, AB T2E 6Z4, Canada
Who are the Rohingya? Why are they being eliminated from Myanmar? Why has the UN called their case "a textbook example of ethnic cleansing"? Why have Pope Francis, Dalai Lama, Malala Yousafzai and a host of leaders and intellectuals called for the protection of Rohingya? Why does the genocide still continue and why are there more than 550,000 people that have fled to neighboring Bangladesh in just a few weeks?
