Thanh niên dân tộc thiểu số di cư: Phiêu lưu giữa hy vọng và giới hạn

isee – Đăng vào January 3, 2019

“Một bạn người Thái hẹn hò với bạn người Kinh, mẹ bạn người Kinh hỏi dò bạn này: Cháu có bỏ bùa con bác không?”. Bạn người Kinh không nói chia tay nhưng tỏ ra lạnh nhạt, nên bạn người Thái chủ động chấm dứt. Sau này mới biết “bạn người yêu sợ rằng nếu chia tay cô này thì sẽ bị bỏ bùa” nên mới hành động như vậy. “Sự tổn thương ở đây không chỉ ở việc chia tay, mà còn ở định kiến: Tôi là người DTTS”, anh Đỗ Quý Dương chia sẻ.

VNE – Thứ sáu, 25/8/2017, 00:07 (GMT+7)

Hai người Mông đến Hà Nội từ cùng một đỉnh núi. Họ rẽ theo những con đường khác nhau.

Bắt đầu từ nửa cuối năm 2016, “Yên Bái” trở thành một trong những từ khóa được tìm kiếm nhiều trên Google. So sánh tương quan giữa “Yên Bái” với hai từ khóa tiêu biểu, gồm “thịt lợn” – một trong những chủ đề thời sự nóng nhất nửa đầu 2017 và “Hội An” – địa danh du lịch nổi tiếng lâu đời, khẳng định sự mới nổi của tỉnh miền núi này, cả với tư cách một địa danh và chủ đề thời sự.

Myanmar’s government has barred Ashin Wirathu, an ultranationalist Buddhist monk, from public preaching for the past year, saying his speeches helped fuel the violence against the country’s Rohingya ethnic group that the United Nations calls ethnic cleansing.

So he has turned to an even more powerful and ubiquitous platform to get his message out — Facebook.

UN chief raises alarm over Rohingya in speech before Suu Kyi

MANILA, Philippines (AP) — The United Nations chief expressed alarm over the plight of Rohingya Muslims in remarks before Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi and other leaders from a Southeast Asian bloc that has refused to criticize her government over the crisis.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said late Monday that the unfolding humanitarian crisis can cause regional instability and radicalization. He met with leaders from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations on the sidelines of its summit in Manila.

“I cannot hide my deep concern with the dramatic movement of hundreds of thousands of refugees from Myanmar to Bangladesh,” Guterres told the ASEAN leaders. Suu Kyi sat close to him but looked mostly at a wall screen showing the U.N. leader. Tiếp tục đọc “UN chief raises alarm over Rohingya in speech before Suu Kyi”

Myanmar: The perilous journey of Rohingya refugees [in pictures]

Al Jazeera

Recent upsurge in violence has forced about 146,000 Rohingya to cross into Bangladesh, according to UN estimates.

06 Sep 2017 10:23 GMT | Rohingya, Myanmar, Humanitarian crises, Human Rights, Myanmar-Bangladesh

About 146,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled from violence in Myanmar since August 25, according to United Nations estimates.

The latest surge brings the total number to 233,000 Rohingya who have sought refuge in Bangladesh since October last year.

The mass exodus came after suspected Rohingya fighters attacked police posts and an army base in the western Rakhine State.

The Myanmar government has blamed the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) for the violence, but fleeing Rohingya civilians accused the Myanmar army of carrying out a campaign of arson and killings – aimed at forcing them out of the country.

Who are the Rohingya?

The Rohingya are often described as “the world’s most persecuted minority”.

They are an ethnic Muslim group who have lived for centuries in the majority Buddhist Myanmar. Currently, there are about 1.1 million Rohingya Muslims who live in the Southeast Asian country.

The Rohingya speak Rohingya or Ruaingga, a dialect that is distinct to others spoken in Rakhine State and throughout Myanmar. They are not considered one of the country’s 135 official ethnic groups and have been denied citizenship in Myanmar since 1982, which has effectively rendered them stateless.

COX’S BAZAR, Bangladesh: Bangladesh has detained and forcibly returned 90 Rohingya migrants to Myanmar, police said Sunday (Aug 27), just hours after Myanmar troops on the other side of the border had opened fire on people fleeing the country.

Police intercepted a group of 70 Rohingya late Saturday after they crossed the “zero line” border zone, where Myanmar soldiers earlier fired mortars and machine guns at villagers making the dangerous dash from the northern state of Rakhine into Bangladesh.

Myanmar troops open fire on civilians fleeing attacks

Al Jazeera

Bangladeshi border guards say troops fired mortars and machine guns at Rohingya civilians trying to escape bloodshed.

Myanmar soldiers opened fire on fleeing Rohingya civilians – mostly women and children – as they attempted to cross the border into Bangladesh and escape surging violence.

On Saturday, an AFP news agency reporter at Bangladesh’s Ghumdhum border post counted more than a dozen mortar shells and countless machine-gun rounds fired by Myanmar security forces in nearby hills onto a large group of Rohingya desperately trying to cross.

It was not immediately clear if any were hit, but the civilians scattered to evade the barrage.

“They have fired on civilians, mostly women and children, hiding in the hills near the zero line,” Border Guard Bangladesh’s (BGB) station chief Manzurul Hassan Khan confirmed. Tiếp tục đọc “Myanmar troops open fire on civilians fleeing attacks”
