From frequent Beachwood contributor Steve Balkin, Roosevelt University professor emeritus:

Chicago Efforts To Stop Genocide Of Rohingya People In Myanmar

Here is a link to my flickr photo album of 102 photos of a rally held September 6, 2017 in the Federal Plaza of Chicago for the Rohingya people of Myanmar (formerly known as Burma).

They are victims of extreme violence and genocide as the Myanmar military engages in ethnic cleansing, pushing them off their land and homes.

One of the protest signs reads, "Never Again. Happening Again," which is especially touching to me, a Jewish person who lost family members in the Holocaust.

Burma Task Force USA has a Chicago office: E-mail: info@BurmaMuslims.org. Phone: (312) 750-1178

They are looking for volunteers to help increase advocacy for the Rohingya in the USA and also to provide tutoring and assimilation help to Rohingya refugees living in Chicago at the Rohingya Culture Center.
