The UN warns of a humanitarian disaster in Burma

Press note:
Disappointed to no one cares for the genocide
The UN warns of a humanitarian disaster in Burma. There is talk of genocide on the Muslim minority rohingya. 146,000 have moved the country.
Burma / Kalmar
"But the world does not care," says Nasim Malik (S) in Kalmar. You are blinded. It is unimaginable that one has not yet learned that this will have consequences for us and for security in the world.
"In today's world, it's not easy to say that this is happening 1000 miles from us and does not touch us. It makes it. It is exactly like this that starts refugee crises and causes terrorists.
Nasim Malik was seventh name on the Social Democrats parliamentary list in Kalmar County. He is in charge of several international projects and committed debates.
"I'm disappointed, he says. Both at the UN and that it is so quiet from Sweden.
One explanation might be that the world believed that everything would be so much better when peace prize winner Aung Sang Suu Kyi took power from the Burma army.
But then it has not been. The persecution of the Muslim minority has not diminished, rather the opposite. And when Aung Sang Suu Kyi finally comments on it, after two weeks of silence, she blames terrorists and talks about "a huge iceberg of disinformation".
"No politician has reacted, and it's extremely weak.
