PEACE FOR ROHINGYAS Campaign

by PARIS (Political Activism, Relief and Institutional Startups)


Defending minorities from human rights violations by governments.


Imagine if someone threw your child into the fire because you were from a different ethnicity or religion ...

The Genocide of Rohingyas

The Problem:

Rohingya men have been burned to death. Countless women have been raped and set on fire in locked houses. Babies have been thrown into the fire in front of their mothers.

Nowhere in the world do they burn people alive, except in Myanmar. All were committed by the Myanmar military government and local mobs.

Shocking Facts:

1) The US military is cooperating with the Myanmar military.

2)There are no economic sanctions on the Myanmar military government.

Our Strategy
We organize constituents to put top-down pressure on lawmakers through volunteer leaders meeting with their Senators.

We put bottom-up grassroots pressure on lawmakers as we organize 100's of volunteers to call their Senators on specific days every week so when phones keep ringing, the Senator's staff and Senator is compelled to pay attention to the issue.

Solution

Ask your Senator to support S. 4659 (The Rohingya Genocide Determination Act) and put economic sanctions on the Myanmar military government.

116th Congress Senate Bill 4659

HOW WE DIFFER

Effective Strategy

We are organizing in the states belonging to the members of the house and senate foreign relations committee.
