Rohingya refugees continue to drown crossing river into Bangladesh

Drowned Rohingya children Sept 29 2017

Normally, I don’t post gruesome images, especially death images, because it can be disrespectful. But I do so now so that others may bear witness & oppose the genocide the Rohingya people are living through. Thousands continue to flee for their lives from Burma; many drown in crossing the border river to Bangladesh. Eight small children & several adults drowned a couple days ago when their boat capsized in choppy waters. These are among the babies who died laid out in preparation for burial. This is the face of genocide. May their sweet souls Rest In Peace.

Stand with the Rohingya people in their struggle against genocide & for full human, democratic, civil, & refugee rights. No human being is alien to us.
