The Rohingya – speech to move motion to UCU’s NEC

Categorized, Stereotyped, Stigmatised,

Marginalised, Deprived, Victimised

Dehumanised

Robbed, Stripped, Raped

Tortured, Dismembered, Discarded

Infanticide, Fratricide, Homicide

Genocide

And in the camps Disenfranchised, Ghettoised

Denied.

We fail for them,
surely, if we neglect
to take action?

What help for them
the eloquence of prayers,
or  simple benediction?

What good to them
the warm benevolence of tears
if we do not give direction?

I move.
