NEARLY 50 Huddersfield University students staged a demonstration to stop the ‘slaughter of children in Burma’.
The group of international students stood in Market Place with banners which read, “Stop killing, stop the misery, stop killing children in Burma.’’
Pictures of the killings were also used to shock passersby yesterday.
Libyan-born Najeeb Numan, 28, has just finished his masters in English.
He decided to join the demonstration because following the liberation of Libya last year, he has first hand experience of people bringing about change.
He said: “Children are being slaughtered in Burma. I do believe that the government of Burma keep ignoring their people –people who have human rights.
“And at the end of the day those people need to be heard.
“We tried to alert people to what was going on and make them more aware of the situation.’’
