After a day of work or school, most continue on their way home. Instead of getting in a car, they walk. Walking into their house, they go for a snack, there is no food there. In fact, they don’t have a house at all. This is a life for people living though the Burma Conflict. Most people do not have anything to go home to, which is what makes this interesting. Many think that it is just another place with homeless people, but it is much more than that.

S. knows about it.
Burma is not getting enough support from other countries and places. It is not something that stopped a long time ago. It has been over 50 years, Burma deserves for people to hear their side of this conflict instead of the government telling everyone what they want to hear. The government “denies the killings” and says the reports are “totally wrong” (Capelouto 1).If enough people knew what was going on and did not just accept the fact that it is happening, maybe we could all get the military and the government to admit to what they are doing, possibly even get them to stop. If this conflict is stopped, most of the homes destroyed could be rebuilt and everyone could be nourished back to health.
This is genocide because there is a mass killing of a certain group of people for a cultural and religious reason. The factors to make this genocide were the killings of many people, destroyed villages, invading homes, which led to starvation and malnutrition.
The mass killings of people were undoubtedly one of the main factors to make this genocide. Killing one person is nit considered genocide, killing a small group is not considered genocide either. That is why some might think the military got away with it at first. Later on, it was becoming genocide by not killing one, but thousands of people based on what religion they were.
The mass killings of people is not the only thing to make this genocide however, there is also the homes that are being destroyed. The military thinks it is fine to break into someone’s home and threaten them to become another religion (World Without Genocide 1). Later on the military might go back to burn your house down (Rally against Genocide of Muslims in Myanmar 1). This shows genocide because it is a way for the government and military to get rid of people that they do not want in their land, as well as the starvation. The military did not intentionally starve the people, but their houses burned down and they...
