Myanmar Refugees

Religious clashes in Myanmar, a Buddhist-majority country, have driven more than 400,000 Rohingya Muslims out of the country, provoking the United Nations’ top human rights official to call the campaign against them “ethnic cleansing.” It’s ruined the reputation of the country’s de facto leader, Aung San Suu Kyi: Her long silence on the violence has had some critics petitioning to rescind her 1991 Nobel Peace Prize. It has raised doubts about whether Myanmar can keep attracting the levels of foreign investment the Southeast Asian nation has counted on to modernize the economy since it opened up to the outside world six years ago

    Thanks for this piece of research exuberant_persimmon. Where did you find it from? Make sure you include the link. It's also more interesting to hear what YOU have to say about it! So, what do you think about this? Do you think the economy will be able to cope in the current climate in Myanmar?

    Good post, by the way, I really understood what is happening in Myanmar after reading this and I find this really heartbreaking would not like it if that happened to me. Please give the link next time you post something by the way, i am new to the hub.

    What if Aung San Suu Kyi wants to help but does not know how to?
    What would you say about that?
