200 Imams are Calling You to Stand with Uighur on April 6 in DC
Uighur Muslims with Sound Vision and Burma Task Force support are organizing a massive rally in the nation’s capital, Washington D.C., on April 6th to free the Uighur people, who continue to face concentration camps in China, can neither pray nor fast, and must eat pork to prove they are moderates.
This will be a powerful gathering that proves the following points:
Muslims support Uighur Muslims: since many doubt it, we have asked 200 Imams to issue a statement of solidarity.
The rally will create support for the congressional bills S. 178 and H.R. 649
The rally will generate publicity and attention from the media that could create more exposure for this crisis.
We are asking all of our supporters and allies who care about human rights within 200 miles of Washington D.C. to come out on April 6th and add their voices to the chorus demanding that justice be served for the Uighur.
Join the April 6 Rally in DC
The plan to relocate Rohingya to an island is a disaster in the making
The United Nations has recently announced their support for a plan to evacuate the Rohingya refugees to a remote island off the Bangladesh coast. You can read about the plan here.
Relocating the refugees to the island of Bhasan Char would place them in potentially fatal danger, as the island is prone to flooding and is directly in the path of cyclones. Almost no Rohingya support it.
Please contact the office of the American ambassador to the UN here, and write a message condemning this plan.
