The Live Aid campaign raised more than $100 million to fight famine in Ethiopia. However, the military government that ruled the country used the donations to fund the forceful resettlement of 600,000 people from the North of the country. They argued that this would solve the drought in the North of the country. Victims of the famine were separated from their families and rounded up into concentration camps, where they suffered from harsh conditions. Tens of thousands died from malaria, starvation, and mass murder by the military.
Rohingya are only able to obtain citizenship if they can prove that their ancestors migrated there before 1823. The article Return for Burma's Displaced Rohingya addresses the issue “The 1982 Citizenship Law doesn't recognize the Rohingya as a national ethnic group and denies citizenship to individuals who cannot provide evidence that their ancestors settled in the country before 1823, the year the British began their occupation of Rakhine state, then known as Arakan”(Gregoire 3). Due to the 1982 citizenship law, the vast majority of rohingya are not able to obtain citizenship even if they were born in the country. This causes them to be taken advantage of and to have many of their basic human rights taken away. Muslim militants have risen up and began fighting back due to the mistreatment of the Rohingya.
But Malaysia has ordered its navy to repel them. Bangladesh may sometimes allow them to live in refugee camps on its south-eastern border, but still sends them back to Myanmar. There are approximately 200,000 Rohingyas living in refugee camps, lots are living in very bad conditions. Indonesia Has made it clear they are not welcome, turning away many of these migrants. (BBC
government did not hold their end of the bargain and did not provide Natives with the supplies promised. As a result, many were forced to migrate due to diseases and starvation. Only about 23% of the Creeks who marched to their new land in Oklahoma survived; Likewise, only 25% of the Cherokee who marched from several southeastern state to Oklahoma survived (Van Doren). Altogether, tens of thousands of American Indians lost their lives to forced migrations. The Indian Removal Act continues to impact America today in terms of demographics.
Most estimates places the number of insurgents killed at around 1,200 to 1,500, with some estimations as high as over 2,000 killed. Coalition forces also captured approximately 1,500 insurgents during the operation. Multiple medals of heroism were rewarded, such as First Sergeant Bradley Kasal and Sergeant Rafael Peralta, who both received Navy Crosses for actions made during the battle. The city itself suffered immensely from the loss of residences, mosques, city services, and businesses. Once called the "City of Mosques," Fallujah had around 200 mosques, of which sixty were completely destroyed during the fighting.
The intensified post-election clampdown led to a second exodus. Some 250,000 Rohingya crossed into Bangladesh, while another 15,000 ultimately made their way to Malaysia.”15 But in accordance with the policy of Bangladesh, the prima facie recognition of Rohingyas closed with a registration cut-off date in mid-1992. The Rohingyas arrived or returned after the cut-off date are not able to receive the status of refugees and are not permitted in the camps.16 So Bangladesh has closed its door to the “least wanted”17 people of the world, saying they are not Bangladeshis. About 30,000 registered Rohingyas, supported by the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, are in Bangladesh. Informally, there are 200,000 unregistered Rohingya in Bangladesh.
INTRODUCTION The Rohingyas are often called the “nowhere people”. A title that looms over the bleak situation the world has thrown them in. The Rohingya Muslims are indigenous to Myanmar where they have not only faced gross violence and persecution but have also been denied citizenship. What has ensued thereafter can only be seen as a game of ping pong being played with human lives. Using trawlers, traffickers have got them on the sea, but most countries such as Thailand, and Malaysia are unwilling to let them embark on their shores.
For the Rohingya, they try to fled to Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand, to save their lives and their families and escape from the massacre happening against them in Burma. The Rohingya crisis has started since the 1970s and till now this issue has not been solved. In 2005, the government has started engaging in a violence and mass killing against the Rohingya, and the main reason for the crisis happening now in Burma is the tension between the Buddhists (the majority in Burma) and the Muslims (minority). In different countries in the world, there are tensions between different groups. However, the tensions never reach what in going on in
Mr.Ewell’s children don’t go to school so the family is uneducated and can only get jobs in labor, just like most Indians but in their case they are just uneducated or had a very terrible education and Indians know each other but aren’t known outside of the Rez, it is the same case for Mr Ewell. Mr Ewell used the courtroom case to gain attention and also empathy for his family but after a while he was “as forgotten as Tom Robinson” (248) which hurt him. The irony is that fought so an innocent person goes to jail so he could get attention and after a while he was just as forgot.It is so ironic because after you wanted something for so long and hurt other people to get it then everything that he hurt people for goes away so quickly. It connects to the theme of racism on both sides because Mr Ewell isn’t on any side that's why he doesn’t have any attention as stated by Jem she lives like a Negro so White person will not talk to her and she is white so no black person will talk to her (192).It is like a baby who will cry when they feel lonely so the parents will come give attention to
Despite our superiority, America still has a plethora of problems from within, one of them is a corrupted system of law enforcement. Our own law enforcement is one of the factors contributing to America’s downfall. What people think is keeping them safe is really just hurting them behind their backs. A publicist by the name of Shaun King has taken note that so far as of July 17, 2017, 660 people have been killed by police or some type of law enforcement. That would make this year alone to be one of the deadliest years since people had begun tracking this statistic back in 2013.
