Support justice for the Rohingya at the ICC
we petition the obama administration to:
Mr. President, Rohingya community members have filed a communication with the International Criminal Court petitioning the Prosecutor to conduct a preliminary examination into genocide and crimes against humanity perpetrated by the Myanmar government.
Mr President, genocide is an evil crime that should not be tolerated on any level under any circumstance. Our history has too many examples of failing to act swiftly. The USA has an opportunity to stop the killing, mutilation, and rape of the Rohingya group.
Mr. President, Myanmar's democracy tolerates impunity and gross human rights violations. Please stand support the communication and stand up for them now.
PLEASE ADD YOUR NAME HERE

British Investors Interested but Cautious, Ambassador Tells Burma
RANGOON — British investment in Burma is on the rise, but problems on the ground in the Southeast Asian frontier market have some investors reluctant to commit, UK Ambassador to Burma Andrew Patrick said at a press conference on Thursday.
Patrick, who took up his post in September, said that even though Burma’s transition to democracy remained incomplete, UK business interest in Burma was growing.
“Many British businessmen are coming here … we’d like to see more,” he said at the Rangoon-based British Embassy.“We’re encouraging investment here,” Patrick continued. “We think that investment is important to create jobs—Western countries bring the technology, skills. They will help improve businesses to an international standard.”
Burma: Lest we don’t see, a genocide is in the making
