What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"protest against Myanmar"
right now Myanmar is waging a genocidal war against the Rohingya people in the western territories. Many civilians are being raped, murdered, forced from their homes to flee from a major ethnic cleansing operation. Aung San Suu Kyi, once a prisoner of Myanmar's totalitarian government and later de facto head, has denied that anything is wrong and there that there is no genocide occurring. She and Bob Geldof were awarded the Freedom Award of the City of Dublin. Suu Kyi has done nothing to stop the ethnic cleansing or even acknowledge it. In protest Bob Geldof went to a municipal court in Dublin and gave back his award document as a protest because "she's a murderer" and he wanted no association with "somebody like that".
