Systematic genocide needs a systematic response

What is happening to our Rohingya brothers and sisters is heartbreaking, and our emotions can push us in the direction of radical action; but we have to adhere to discipline and patience. If we go about this the wrong way, we will just make matters worse.

I have received comments and messages from people ready to take action against companies like Unilever, to impose consequences upon them for their silent complicity with the genocide in Arakan. But I urge all of you to work in coordination with the #WeAreAllRohingyaNow Campaign.”

In this blogpost, Shahid encourages people to be patient in activism, to work together with the campaign in a controlled and organised manner, and not to let our emotions get the better of us, since individual actions out of anger would only make the situation worse for the Rohingya.
