The attempted genocide of the Rohingya people by the Myanmar authorities and many of its citizens is one of the greatest crimes, so far, of this millennium. What compounds this horror is that the powers of the world who usually rush to condemn such atrocities have remained remarkably subdued. We even have the scenario whereby the leader of Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi, has received a Nobel Prize for Peace which has not been rescinded, even after the blatant contempt she has shown for the plight of the Rohingya people.
Let Rebel Voice be clear, the persecution, ethnic cleansing and slaughter of the oppressed Rohingya also included the violation and murder of their children. Many sickening images of the killing of Rohingya children can be found online. It can be wondered why the lives of one group of children, Europeans for example, or North Americans, are considered more valuable than the lives of another, be they Rohingya or Palestinian.
The following video looks at the traumatic life of one young Rohingya boy who loves to sing. After the murder of his mother and sisters he still sings, but now his songs are of sadness and death. He sings only laments for the family he has lost. This is a little part of his story. His name is Anose.
