Thant Myo Htway, one of the protestors, said “We strongly condemn the actions of ARSA Bengali extremist terrorists that damages our nation’s sovereignty. There is no Rohingya amongst Myanmar’s ethnicities. Every Myanmar citizens of all ethnicities working here in Japan agree with what the government led by Aung San Suu Kyi is doing in Rakhine in order to keep the peace. We want the lies and accusations of ethnic cleansing and genocide to stop so we’re protesting together in front of the UN office here in Shibuya, Tokyo. There are around 400 of us. The Japanese police force had provided security detail for us.”

On top of the protest, a letter was also sent to Japan’s UN office as well as Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
