Protesters to “urge condemnation” of suffering of Rohingya people

07:55 08 November 2012

A protest is to take place today outside the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) to highlight the suffering of the Rohingya people in Myanmar.

The demonstration in Westminster has been organised by campaign grouup Restless Beings and is part of a global day of action.

The group says the protest is being held “to urge the FCO and international leaders to condemn the massacres of the Rohingya people of Burma, allowing them aid, access, protection and ultimately citizenship in their homeland”.

Speakers at the event in London are to include MPs John Ashworth, Baroness Cox, Sadiq Khan and George Galloway, human rights advocates Mabrur Ahmed and Rahima Begum of Restless Beings, Tun Khin of BROUK, Nurul Islam of ARNO and Mark Farmener of Burma Campaign UK.
