Urgent! Tell Your U.S. Representative To Support Sanctions on Burma's Army
The Trump administration is considering sanctions against Burma's commander-in-chief Min Aung Hlaing and several other generals, as well as leaders of ethnic Rakhine militias accused of torching Rohingya villages.
President Trump needs to hear from your member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Please take a minute to send an email to your House member.
U.S. Reps. Joseph Crowley and Steve Chabot have circulated a "Dear Colleague" letter to their fellow members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The letter to U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson asks the Trump Administration to impose sanctions on Burma's army for its campaign of violence and terror against Rohingya communities in Burma (Myanmar).
Time is short! The deadline for House Members to sign the letter is close of business this Friday, October 13th.
It’s been just five weeks since the Burmese army launched its offensive against Rohingya communities. Burma's military has now forced over 500,000 Rohingya to flee to Bangladesh, the majority women and children. And Burma's army is still forcing many Rohingya to flee Burma in overcrowded rickety boats that can sink, drowning the occupants.
We can put pressure Min Aung Hlaing, the head of Burma's military, to stop these attacks. Please send an email today to your U.S. representative.
