Londoners protest in solidarity with Rohingyas

A group of British activists have marched in London to condemn Myanmar’s deadly crackdown on Rohingya Muslims.

Gathering outside the 10 Downing Street on Wednesday, the protesters called on Prime Minister Theresa May to help end the Myanmar government’s ongoing genocide against the religious minority.

The protesters said Britain had to utilize its position on the UN Security Council and use its historical ties with Myanmar as grounds for an international solution.

Myanmar's security forces have long been attacking Rohingyas and torching their villages since October 2016, in a bid to push them out of the western state of Rakhine. The attacks have been intensified since August 25, with State Counselor Aung San Suu Ky ignoring international demands to call off the operation.
