Obama Should Condemn Myanmar’s Oppression Of, Denial Of Health Care For Rohingya
New York Times: Myanmar’s Appalling Apartheid
Nicholas Kristof, New York Times columnist
“…Welcome to Myanmar, where tremendous democratic progress is being swamped by crimes against humanity toward the Rohingya, a much-resented Muslim minority in this Buddhist country. … This year, the Myanmar authorities have cracked down even harder, making the situation worse. First, the government expelled Doctors Without Borders, which had been providing health care for the Rohingya. Then orchestrated mobs attacked the offices of humanitarian organizations, forcing them out. Some kinds of aid are resuming, but not health care. … President Obama, who visited Myanmar and is much admired here, should flatly declare that what is happening here is unconscionable…” (5/28).
