Rohingya people suffer, and no one is allowed to help

The story of the Rohingya people is desperately sad and compelling. They are a Muslim minority living largely in Arakan State, Burma. By most they’re considered foreigners, more Bangladeshi than Burmese. They’re the people pushed out to sea with no engine if they drift onto foreign land, left to die or land in another inhospitable country. They’re the people attacked by mobs of their neighbors and beaten to death. They’re the only people in Burma restricted to a two child per family policy. And for the last several months the government of Burma has kicked out aid groups and refuses to let them provide healthcare to the Rohingya.

Obama is concerned.

Suu Kyi is silent.

What will we do?
