First they came for the Rohingyas..Bengalis..Indians and at last all the Muslims

First they came for the Rohingyas,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Rohingya.

Then they came for the Bengalis,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Bengali.

Then they came for the Kalas (Indians in rude derogatory term),
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Kala.

Then they came for MUSLIMS in Myanmar
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Muslim.

Now they came for Christian in Myanmar
and and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Christian.

Then they came for NLD Government and democratic forces in Myanmar and there was no one left to speak out for me, NLD Government and democratic forces.

Adapted from the following famous words of pastor Martin Niemöller from Wikipedia.

First they came for the communists,
and I didn’t speak out
because I wasn’t a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I
didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a
Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for
me.

    အလုပ္သမားေတြ လုပ္ခနည္းလို႔ ဆႏၵျပတာေတြ ဘယ္လို ျဖစ္ကုန္ၿပီလဲ ဘာမွ မသိရေတာ့ပါ။

    ၿမိဳ႕နယ္ေတြမွာ မိမိလိုအပ္ခ်က္ေတြအတြက္ ဆႏၵထုတ္ေဖာ္တဲ့သတင္းေတြလဲ အစအနေတြ ေပ်ာက္ကုန္ပါၿပီ။

    တိုင္းျပည္ရဲ့အေနာက္ေျမာက္ဖက္က ဘာသာေရး ကြဲျပားမႈေတြေၾကာင့္ လူေတြရဲ႕ အာရံု လဲြပို႔ေပးလိုက္တာ အေရွ႕ေျမာက္ဖက္က ကခ်င္ေတြကို မ်ိဳးျဖဳတ္စစ္ပဲြ စစ္ရွိန္ ျမႇင့္ခ်င္လို႔လားဗ်။

    အစၥလာမ္ကို ခုတံုးလုပ္ၿပီး လူေတြရဲ႕ အာရံုကို ေျပာင္းေပးဖို႔ပဲ ခင္ဗ်ားတို႔မွာ နည္းဗ်ဴဟာေတြ ရွိတာလား။

    ကုန္းေဘာင္ေခတ္ရဲ့ ေနာက္ဆံုးအခ်ိန္ ေနမ၀င္ခင္တုန္းက ဖမ္းထားတဲ့ ဖေအတူ မေအကဲြ မင္းညီမင္းသားေတြကို နန္းေတာ္အေနာက္မွာ သတ္ျဖတ္ခ်င္ေတာ့ နန္းေတာ္ အေရွ႕မွာ ဇာတ္ /အျငိမ့္ေတြ ေထာင္ျပီး ဆိုင္းသံ/ဗံုသံေတြနဲ႔ အာရံုလွည့္ျဖားခဲ့ၾကတာကို ျပန္သတိရမိတယ္။
