Mensagem do presidente internacional de #MSF, Dr. Christos Christou,
Segue 🧵
📣Imagens e histórias da guerra na Ucrânia são chocantes. O sofrimento dos civis nos lembra de padrões que testemunhamos trabalhando em zonas de conflito nos últimos 50 anos e, mais recentemente: na #Síria, no #Iraque, no #Iêmen, no #Afeganistão.
📣Esta guerra compartilha muitos dos mesmos elementos, incluindo sofrimento, tristeza e desespero.
Como em toda crise, nossos pensamentos estão com as pessoas. Nossas equipes de emergência estão trabalhando incansavelmente para tentar levar atendimento a quem mais precisa.

#Birmanie Ce qu'il faut savoir sur le coup d'Etat (thread) ⬇️
C'est toute la stratégie d'engagement européenne et américaine 🇪🇺🇺🇸 qui vole en éclats - très peu de sanctions malgré le massacre des Rohingyas.

C'est aussi le pari d'Aung San Suu Kyi et ses renoncements qui s'écroule.
Min Aung Hlaing, le chef de l'armée birmane, avait annoncé qu'il respecterait les résultats des élections.

2 mois plus tard, coup d'Etat. La valeur de la parole de l'armée... Image

Let me clarify why is it next to impossible for #Hindus to win this ongoing Ideological/ civilizational war with us #Muslims:

If the #Hindu cause is +1, #Islamic cause is -1, and 0 is neutral, then we #Muslims are fighting hard for -1 while U Hindus R aiming for just 0!..(1/12)
..Let me explain:

V #Muslims attack #Hinduism.
U #Hindus attack only Traitors & Pakistan!

V fight for #Islamic cause.
U fight for #Nationalist cause!

We #Muslims want #Sharia state.
You #Hindus want #Secular state! ...(2/12)
... V R fighting #Religious war.
U just fighting political war!

V vote on Islamic grounds.
U vote on #SabkaSathSabkaVikas

V #Muslims never raise voice for #KashmiriPandits but burn cities for #Rohingyas!
U #Hindus speak for not only KP but also for Sufis & Balochis! ..(3/12)

@UNHumanRights Chief @mbachelet says #Myanmar disagrees with her office's findings on #HumanRights abuses/#violations but she renews her offer to engage with government as that's the best way to address issue. She also hopes to see women cabinet ministers after Nov 8 elections ImageImageImageImage
@UNHumanRights @mbachelet calls on #Myanmar to achieve successful & fair #elections for democratic transition by allowing all sectors of population including those living in #Rakhine #Chin #Shan to vote without discrimination. Regrets no steps taken to allow #Rohingyas to vote ImageImageImageImage
@UNHumanRights @mbachelet offers #Myanmar assistance in areas like #constitutional changes strengthening civilian/democratic control, activities to end #military impunity, new national identity based on tolerance/diversity & address statelessness to tackle #humanrights #abuses Image

.@ASEAN @mofakr do clarify how giving an award to CEO of #KBZ bank which funded over $25mn USD to #MyanmarMilitary who in turn is responsible for serious international crimes against #Rohingyas ok? @UN FFM report already names them
How is it fine to support #Hate & #violence? 1/n ImageImage
While the #Rohingya community was massacred, forced to flew, and are still struggling to survive, #ASEAN gave an award for 'Inclusion' to one of the biggest corporate funders of Tatmadaw. Is this the kind of "support" victims should expect from Int organisations? @ASEAN 2/n
& this award is supported by @MOFAkr_eng. While the former UN Special Rapporteur to Myanmar @YangheeLeeSKKU had shown the world what happened with #Rohingya community.

#UN IIMM Chief Koumjian says those #Rohingyas who fled #Myanmar, cannot go home "continue to suffer everyday that they live outside their homes". Adds in his role, regardless of ethnicity, religion, "we're interested in human beings" to gather evidence of international crimes ImageImage

On 3rd anniversary of #Rohingya exodus from #Myanmar, @OHCHRAsia urges nation to "address root causes" as it "failed to implement transparent & fully independent accountability measures for serious #HumanRights violations & possible international crimes"
On the 1st anniversary of #Rohingya mass exodus from #Myanmar to #Bangladesh, I had visited the #refugee camps, seen them living in cramped, filthy conditions without work or systematic education. 3 years now, conditions worsened, #repatriation & negotiations practically stalled ImageImageImageImage
When brave #Myanmar citizens like @thinzashunleiyi @maung_saungkha @Thet_Swe_Win in nation speak up for #Rohingyas esp 3 years ago, they risked & still risk being targeted, labelled as traitors or anti-Myanmar. Such activists defending Rohingyas few & far between inside Myanmar

Chilling account of alleged rape of #Rakhine woman by #Myanmar #military as she was accused of being an #ArakanArmy member. Government deems #AA #terrorists. Story cannot be independently verified. But such accounts similar to what happened to #Rohingyas…
International community, foreign embassies in #Myanmar have voiced concerns over conflicts between #ArakanArmy & #Myanmar #military & how military conducting "clearance operations" to weed out those deemed as #AA #terrorists. Conflicts resulted in more than 77,000 displacements ImageImage
When #Myanmar security forces conducted "clearance operations" to hunt down perpetrators in #Rakhine in 2017, many #Rohingyas accused soldiers of mass #rape & #atrocities. Many dismissed accusations as false.… Now, similar accounts against ethnic Rakhine.

#Myanmar to submit 1st report to @CIJ_ICJ by this weekend 4 months after world court ruled against nation agreeing with @Gambia_MOJ #genocide did occur against #Rohingyas. But @GlobalJusticeC says response from Myanmar since "has been deeply flawed at worst & superficial at best"
@ASEANMP echoes what @GlobalJusticeC has said in that #Myanmar has not shown any "credible evidence" of "improving the situation for the #Rohingya". Adds they're still living "in #apartheid conditions". This as nation supposed to submit report to @CIJ_ICJ…
@ASEANMP @mpklang even questioned "how are we still at this point?" when it comes to the treatment of #Rohingyas in #Myanmar as they continue to face restrictions in movement & access to services. Member @chamnanxyz also urges @ASEAN to get Myanmar "to implement genuine reform"

Prof Lee adds it's "ironic" to see what happened to the #Rohingyas in #Myanmar in 2017 and prior now being seen again against the #Rakhine #ethnic citizens as she highlights how the #military is shelling and attacking the residents there now #Justice4Rohingya Image
Prof Lee highlights how it's "entirely doubtful" that the most responsible will be held accountable" for all the alleged atrocities in #Rakhine #Myanmar. Calls for nation to "dismantle" the system of discrimination against #Rohingyas & to amend the laws, reform justice system Image

#UN Special Rapporteur to #Myanmar @YangheeLeeSKKU assumed this role in 2014, visited the nation several times to understand #HumanRights situation there speaking up for various #ethnic groups until she was banned from 2017 as nation accused her of being biased in her assessment
#UN Special Rapporteur to #Myanmar @YangheeLeeSKKU had fought tirelessly to raise serious #HumanRights issues/violations in the country especially on the plight of #Rohingyas. She had said she'll not shy away from "calling a spade a spade" though she knew Myanmar wouldn't like it
The new #UN Special Rapporteur to #Myanmar to replace @YangheeLeeSKKU hasn't been identified yet but the successor has big shoes to fill. He/she will also need to convince Myanmar to allow visits within country & to cooperate, communicate again with the Special Rapporteur

#Chinese President #XiJinping expected in #Myanmar, his 1st visit since 2009. Number of #economic deals said to be inked. #China has huge influence from #investments to peace process on Myanmar. Nation also relies heavily on #Beijing's support on international arena like #UNSC
As international community, particularly the West, criticise #Myanmar for its actions against the #Rohingyas & how nation seems to allow its #military to operate with impunity, Myanmar has increasingly gravitated back to #China after previous Thein Sein govt opened to the West
#China President #XiJinping has met with #Myanmar President Win Myint & State Counsellor #aungsansuukyi. As developing economy, Myanmar still in real need of expertise/assistance & investments in sectors like infrastructure & energy. Pics from Myanmar govt… ImageImageImageImage

@Gambia_MOJ confirms the #Hague @CIJ_ICJ will announce decision on Jan 23 on whether #Myanmar must implement provisional measures after #Gambia filed case against Myanmar for alleged #genocide against #Rohingyas. This some 1 month after a 3-day hearing that #AungSanSuuKyi fronted ImageImageImageImage
If The #Hague @CIJ_ICJ orders #Myanmar to implement provisional measures, it's a clear indication the international judges agree with #Gambia @Gambia_MOJ that Myanmar is indeed guilty of committing #genocide against the #Rohingyas. #AungSanSuuKyi has consistently denied that ImageImageImageImage
A point to note: even if @CIJ_ICJ The #Hague judges order Myanmar to implement provisional measures to stop the alleged #genocide still ongoing against the #Rohingyas remaining in #Rakhine, #AungSanSuuKyi & government don't have to do so as court has no enforcement powers ImageImageImageImage
