(en) [India] Calcutta: anarchists protest against the genocide of the Rohingya people By ANA (ca, fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 11 Sep 2017 15:20:43 +0300

In Calcutta, last Monday, September 4, a demonstration was held in front of the Consulate of Myanmar (formerly Burma) against the genocide of the Rohingya people. The demonstration was convened by BSN ( Bastar Solidarity Network , a solidarity network). BSN members, Antifa and anarchists participated in the protest carrying banners, banners, posters and echoing screams of order. Despite the police presence, no serious occurrence was recorded. ---- Rohingya is one of the most persecuted people in the world. Although they have lived in Myanmar for generations, the government of the country claims that they are new immigrants, denying them, therefore, citizenship. About 1 million people form the ethnic, linguistic and religious minority of the Rohingya people, Muslims discriminated against and persecuted for decades. It is believed that the brutal repression against them has provoked a diaspora of at least another 1 million in various parts of the world. In Myanmar, they are prohibited from marrying or traveling without the permission of the authorities and have no right to own land or property.
