Burma Task Force deplores today's murder of Rohingya leader Mohibullah and urges the Bangladeshi authorities to conduct a credible investigation into these tragic events. International community organizations should also work to advocate for refugee camp security that protects all Rohingya from such violence..
Several rallies organized by the Burma Task Force were covered by the local news.
More information on the New York rally can be found here.
The San Francisco demonstration, held outside the War Memorial Gym while Aung San Suu Kyi was speaking inside, was also covered by local media. Watch a video here from CBS news. Photos of protestors can also be found at Mercury News. ABC News also covered the rally; however, they incorrectly reported that the Rohingya are from Bangladesh. Burma is the ancestral land of the Rohingya.
Local news in Saskatoon, Canada, covered the rally there, starting at the 3:58 mark.
