Introduction: The Rohingya people are denied citizenship in Myanmar, forced into manual labor on government projects and forbidden to marry without official permission. Burma's Rohingya Muslims are said to be one of the world's most persecuted people, and now they have turned to dangerous methods to change their fate. In harrowing attempts to migrate to nearby countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia, many Rohingya ended up stuck on overcrowded boats at sea, with no country willing to grant them safe landing. Hundreds of others have died when such migrant boats capsized. (CBC News) Why are they leaving Myanmar?
1. Feminist Lens • Oppression – Indian women in this film did not receive the same treatment as men, especially when they become widows. Females as young as eight years are forced to find a husband as their families cannot not support all of their children due to their poor socio-economic conditions. However, when Indian females lose their husbands, they are often looked down upon as it was viewed as a sin for a woman to remain a widow. Widows are required to spend all their lives in an ashram, where living conditions are well below average due to a limited supply of food and other necessities.
The powerful earthquake left over one million people in Haiti homeless (DesRoches et al./2011). The already failed government became useless and sending aid to Haiti became challenging for other organizations because of lack of airport runways amongst other things (DesRoches et al./2011). With many of the hospitals damaged or destroyed, health care providers were not prepared to help so many. Flooding and unsanitary conditions were cause for concern in field hospitals (Lichtenberger et al./2010). Keeping infectious diseases from spreading inside of field hospitals was challenging, especially without access to running water (Lichtenberger et al./2010).
Thousands of people lost their homes and many people were made orphan and widows. War brings hatred and spreads falsehood. The Vietnam War was a long, costly armed conflict that pitted the communist regime of North Vietnam also known as “Viet Cong” against South Vietnam and its ally The United States. During this period more than 3 million people including 58,000 Americans and more than 1.5 million Vietnamese civilians were killed in the Vietnam war. After some time, the anti-war protest began to increase which ultimately ended with the withdrawal of U.S. forces in 1973.
Over 220,000 died and 300,000 people were injured. This earthquake destroyed over 293,383 houses, which made 1.3 million people homeless. Some of hospitals were collapsed which made people hard to aid themselves and led to the shortage of doctors. As the buildings in Port au Prince were in very poor condition that were non-resistant for earthquake, many commercial buildings collapsed and therefore businesses in Haiti destroyed. Toussaint L’Ouverture International Airport, only airport in Haiti, was unusable due to damage in the control tower and runways, and ports like Port-au-Prince seaport were also unusable due to the fall of container cranes.
This region has witnessed some of the most extreme violence and conflict especially in Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi and DRC. In the year 2004 over 3.9 million internally displaced people(IDPs) and refugees staying in around 300 refugee camps administered by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR 2005). The UNHCR which has been funded by donor states, private donors and international organizations, functions as the guardian of international refugee law. The international community was totally unprepared for the Great Lakes crisis that happened in Zaire (now DRC) following the most terrible genocides in the world history: the 1994 Rwanda Genocide (Wagner,
(Polsby 21) This same technique can also be seen in Turkey. In Turkey many strict gun control laws were passed against most citizens of Turkey. The passed gun control laws allowed for the genocide of millions of Armenians once again unable to defend themselves. (Polsby 21) Gun control has led a terrible example across the world, and often results in the genocide of millions, as millions of citizens find themselves unable to defend against a tyrannical government. On the other hand, in countries that have refused to implement any gun control, have some of the lowest crime rates in the world.
The Wall also was a reason and a geographic factor for the Separation of Palestinian families. On the other hand, people who live in the western side of the Wall suffered from daily and serious problems. Passing through gates everyday forced a large number to leave education. For example, the Palestinian village “Barta'a” which surrounded by the Wall and gates doesn’t have schools for high students, that forced many of the students especially girls to leave their schools and not completing the university education. As well as school teachers suffered from indignation and soldiers hatred at checkpoints, in this context the education of girls and women was the more areas affected, due to fear on them pushed some families to force and prevent their daughters from going to schools and completing their education.
Many people, mainly children dying of malnutrition, around 58% of children in Burundi, suffer from malnutrition (Bloemen, 2013). The Civil War in 1993 is the main reason why so many innocent people have nothing to eat in Burundi. Due to this war, a large amount of Burundians, are unable to produce and farm their own food (Pike, 2016). This issue has been ongoing for the past fifteen years. (Frank, 2015) Every day, you have to see at least one person begging for money, or food, and basic human necessities.
Muslim militants have risen up and began fighting back due to the mistreatment of the Rohingya. This backlash has caused the myanmar military to start attacking the muslim militant as well as innocent civilians within the rakhine state. The havoc that is occuring in the rakhine state is illustrated in an article from BBC news, it says “The latest exodus began on 25 August after Rohingya Arsa militants attacked more than 30 police posts... At least 6,700 Rohingya, including at least 730 children under the age of five, were killed in the month after the violence broke out, according to Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF). Amnesty International says the Myanmar
