#Bangladesh: Weeks of heavy monsoon rainfall in the Rohingya refugee camps pose a major threat to over 100,000 children living in them.
The rain recently caused landslides which killed children and injured many others. The deaths highlight the danger facing Rohingya refugees living in fragile and lethal conditions in the nearby camps.
Even if the rain stops, the danger of landslides in the hilly refugee camps - which are home to one million people - remains as the water seeps into the ground and destabilizes it further. The sustained heavy rains are unlikely to cease as the monsoon season peaks.
All this takes place within the context of the ethnic-based Rohingya genocide. The media has shown horrifying photos of villages on fire, endless lines of people threading their way across muddy dikes to reach the rivers dividing #Myanmar from Bangladesh, and crossing in boats where they will try to survive in huts made of canvas and sticks.
The majority are women and children. Many of the women have not only witnessed their homes burned, but have been subjected to rape, and aid agencies are reporting 1,300 Rohingya children in Bangladesh’s refugee camps are without any parents.
As all this happens in the world’s plain sight, not one of the world’s great capitalist powers has taken a real stand against it. In the new socialist society, after overthrowing the capitalists, we could get to work on immediately meeting human needs around the world.
We can live in a world where people of all nationalities and so-called races are sharing the planet together in equality and peace. But that's not just going to happen. You have to fight for it and that's going to take a revolution: www.revcom.us
