Petition to Ban Ki-moon (Secretary-General of the United Nations)

For the United Nations to class the Rohingya Crisis as Genocide.

Many of you will be aware that the Myanmar Army are systematically raping and slaughtering Rohingya Muslim babies, children, women & men. This is causing thousands upon thousands to flee to Bangladesh resulting in a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions. The United Nations define Genocide as : (A) Killing members of the group;(B) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;(C) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;(D) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;(E) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group They are not classing this crisis as Genocide because in doing so they would be OBLIGED to intervene, including by force if necessary. Instead they are stating this is 'Ethnic Cleansing'  Aung San Suu Kyi, the Incumbent State Counsellor of Myanmar was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize yet she does not condemn this or intervene to prevent the Mynamar Army from carrying out unspeakable acts on these persecuted people. Babies are being left behind on the beach to die as their parents know they cannot feed them. Children are being gang raped by Myanmar Soldiers, becoming pregnant and already starving their baby will be born to a fate worse than death! The heinous acts of abhorrent, inhumane cruelty are too many to describe. I am calling upon the UNITED NATIONS to class this as Genocide (because without doubt it is) and to intervene in any way necessary to help these people. The Rohingya people need help now, too many have died already. Camps in Bangladesh are squalid, over populated and do not have enough food and medicine to help. Please join me in imploring the countries of the United Nations to help now?! Thank you very much
