Text to Stop the Genocide of Rohingyas

Text the word PARIS to 484848 to join the Peace for Rohingyas campaign and help stop the genocide against Rohingyas ...

Welcome to the Peace for Rohingyas campaign. We need your help to canvas your Senator and Congressional Representative to support two bills that will condemn the Burmese military from committing atrocities against the Rohjngyas. To make it easy, you don’t have to call any lawmaker - our campaign will automatically send the call to you, and help you through the process. Here is how it works: text the word PARIS to the 484848 number to join the campaign.

To Support S. 1186

The campaign will send you a text message asking you if you are now ready to talk to your Senator. When you are ready, if you text back your zip code, it automatically sends you a phone call connecting you to your Senator. The phone call has a pre-recorded message giving instructions on what to say when connected. All you will need to say is that you want the Senator to support Senate bill S. 1186 and full economic sanctions on Burma. This process takes less than 2 mins to complete.

To Support H.R. 3190

Then the campaign will send you another text asking whether you are ready to talk to your Congressional Representative. When you are ready, if you text back YES, it automatically sends you a phone call connecting you to your Congressional Representative. The phone call has a pre-recorded message giving instructions on what to say when connected. All you will need to say is that you want the Congressional Representative to support House bill H.R. 3190 and full economic sanctions on Burma. This automated process takes less than 2 minutes.

All you have to do is text the word PARIS to 484848 now!

Problem:

Ronhingya men are being burned alive. Countless women are being raped and set on fire in locked houses. Babies are being slaughtered or thrown into the fire in front of their mothers. Nowhere in the world do they burn people alive, except in Burma. All are being committed by Burmese military and local mobs.

Solution:

The Senate is considering Senate bill S. 1186.

Question: What is S. 1186?

Answer: S. 1186 - is a bill to promote democracy and human rights in Burma and for other purposes.


The House is considering House bill H.R. 3190.

Question: What is H.R. 3190?

Answer: H.R. 3190 - is a bill which will require reporting on war crimes against humanity and genocide; impose trade, visa and financial restrictions on those responsible for these crimes; support investigations to support the prosecution of war criminals; prohibit the expansion of U.S. military assistance to Burma until reforms take place; and promote reforms to prevent the Burmese miltary stranglehold on Burma's natural resources.

Our campaign will ask the people:

  • To support Senate bill S. 1186 (S. 1186)
  • To support House bill H.R. 3190 (H.R.3190)
  • Demand full sanctions on Burmese military government
What we are doing:
  • Top down pressure on lawmakers through our leadership team asking them to co-sponsor/support this bill with full, not partial economic sanctions.
  • Bottom up grassroots pressure on lawmakers from the public via 1000's of phone calls asking them to support this bill with full economic sanctions.
HOW WE DIFFER: Effective technology
  • Our community and volunteer leaders recruit supporters by going to mosques, churches, colleges and other public places to update the crowd about the Rohingya situation and ask them to join the campaign by texting the word PARIS to 484848.
  • After supporters have joined the campaign, the campaign texts back supporters if they are ready to talk to their lawmakers now.
  • When the supporter texts back their zip code, the campaign automatically sends a phone call to the supporter, with easy recorded instructions on what to say to the lawmaker's staff to support the bills, when connected.
  • Supporters never have to call the lawmakers themselves.
  • We measure and map the number of successful calls made.

HOW WE DIFFER: Effective STRATEGY
  • We are organizing in the following states belonging to the members of the house and senate foreign relations committee.
