Default Petition: Take back Aung San Suu Kyi's Nobel Peace Prize

Take back Aung San Suu Kyi's Nobel Peace Prize

SIGN THE PETITION



https://www.change.org/p/take-back-a...el-peace-prize


Quote:
In the past week, it has been reported that the military under Aung San Suu Kyi’s Government of Myanmar has been attacking the predominantly muslim Rohingyas in Rakhine, Myanmar. According to the reports, the Rohingyas — including women and children — have been killed and physically tortured. According to the European Rohingya Council (ERC), 3,000 Rohingyas have been killed within three days between 25 and 27 August, 2017. Their villages have been burned to the ground. The military claimed that this was an effort to eliminate terrorism.
Until this second, the de facto ruler of Myanmar Aung San Suu Kyi has done virtually nothing to stop this crime against humanity in her country. As a result, there are many of the Rohingyas fled their homes and are stranded in the Myanmar’s border with Bangladesh. The International Organization of Migration (IOM) reported that there are at least 18,445 Rohingya refugees currently fled the area (bbc.com).
But Suu Kyi as a Nobel Peace Prize laureate appears to be deaf and have done nothing to protect her citizens. Meanwhile, in 2013, Suu Kyi made a controversial statement that appeared to be anti-Islam.
“No one told me that I was to be interviewed by a muslim.”
This statement was made by Aung San Suu Kyi, after her interview by a BBC Today anchor, Mishal Husain, in 2013. Suu Kyi’s disappointment may be caused by the question asked by Husain on the hardships experienced by muslims in Myanmar. Suu Kyi was also asked to condemn the anti-muslims and those who acted violently against the muslims that led the Rohingyas to leave Myanmar (from Popham, Peter, Journalist for The Independent, The Lady and The Generals — Aung San Suu Kyi and Burma’s Struggle for Freedom, 2016).
Many people were caught by surprise that those words came from Suu Kyi, a democracy hero in Myanmar and a 2012 Nobel Peace Prize laureate. It might only be one racially-insensitive sentence, but that was one sentence too many, and the meaning is too much for those who love peace.
Many people in many countries, including in Indonesia, respect and admire Suu Kyi. She is known as a figure of patience, of peace loving, who eventually took back the power in her country peacefully from the military dictatorship in Myanmar. Her statement made many more disappointed and angry. This opens up the prevailing question regarding Suu Kyi’s position on the muslim minority in Myanmar. There has been no official position from Suu Kyi with regards to the human right violations that have been rampant as experienced by the Rohingya minority.
Over the past three years more than 140,000 Rohingya muslims have been living in grave conditions in refugee camps in Myanmar and in many other countries, including Indonesia.
What is wrong with being a muslim, Suu Kyi? Doesn't democracy and human rights teach us to respect differences in beliefs and celebrate brotherhood and sisterhood? Whatever the religion, shouldn’t Suu Kyi and all of us respect each other and not discriminate against other human beings?
Coming from a democratic hero, one racist statement is one too many. It destroys the democratic values that respects differences in beliefs. As a laureate of Nobel Peace Prize, a racist statement renders the peaceful values to be artificial, giving rise to suspicions even conflicts.
The Nobel Prize is the highest prize only to be given to “people who have given their utmost to international brotherhood and sisterhood.” These peaceful values need to be nurtured by the laureates of the Nobel Peace Prize, including Suu Kyi, until their last days. When a laureate cannot maintain peace, then for the sake of peace itself the prize needs to be returned or confiscated by the Nobel Peace Prize Committee.
Therefore, we hereby demand the Chair of the Nobel Peace Prize Committee confiscate or take back the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to Aung San Suu Kyi. Only those who are serious in keeping the world peace may be awarded such a coveted Prize.
Please sign the petition, which will be delivered to the Nobel committee to ensure ASSK is revoked of the coveted Nobel Prize

If Obama kept his for virtually doing nothing for 8 years,I don't see the point.That said they are looking to take away Trumps' presidency and he has no award.
That said that which is happening to the Rohingya's is abhorrent and blatant genocide..
BTW she not in charge of the military.Source ABC TV.
The rebels that are terrorists of the Rohingyas' that Alqaeda and Isis is stirring up must be defeated.
Nonetheless what is happening is awful,and I hope Australia take some,even if its tokenistic like the Syrian refugee intake was.

Nobel Peace Prize has become a joke these days, especially after Obama and the EU won one for pretty much BS reasons. It's like they have to give one out every year. I'd really like to see them just declining to give out the Noble Peace Prize because there were no worthy candidates that year.

Not going to happen. Denying people their basic human rights is something we have been particularly good at throughout our history. More recently look how long we had to wait for same sex marriage issue to get resolved. As Robert Muldoon said, Kiwis moving into Australia raise both country's IQs.

Waiting for that feeble old woman to act itself is the problem.
She neither has the power but more importantly does not care about them.

Suki doesn't have the power to go against the Myanmar army. If she tries to do anything against army she'll be overthrown on the very next day.

She's just a puppet.

Hard to believe Myanmar is still mostly under military control, so Aung Sang Suu Kyi role is basically ceremonial, she holds 0 power.

The most scary thing is that Myanmar have militarial ties with NK, recently purchasing an Hwasong-6 IRBM missile from them.

Thats for another discussion,as long as religious practice exmptions are put in place,I care not.

As a leader she is bereft of compassion,probably a case of ignorance.Ignorant as in bias held over a long time.
Henry Kissinger comes to mind of Peace prize travesties.

If NK takes the smallest military approach against Bangladesh, US will find that as an excuse to attack NK so it would be a suicidal move from them. Furthermore we too have diplomatic and trade relationships with North Korea so I highly doubt that would be a threat we need to worry about.

In any situation, we should absolutely try our best to avoid any sort of warfare. As we are extremely densely populated and they have a much stronger military it will be a mass genocide on our side of the border if that were to happen.

Whatever solution we need to get at, it needs to be a diplomatic one.

I wonder what they imported, probably garments or textiles, to clothe their army.
