On similar lines, 'But no eyes on Manipur?' is gaining traction; it suggests that while people are talking about violence in other countries, they are silent when it comes to the northeastern state. Among those who have joined the trend is Rami Desai, a noted expert on Manipur.

Violence in Manipur

The ethnic violence began in May 2023 between the valley-dominant Meitei community and the Kuki-Zo tribes, who are dominant in the hill districts of southern Manipur and a few other hill areas.

Over 220 have been killed and nearly 50,000 internally displaced. A year on, thousands are still living in relief camps in both the valley and hill areas.

What is the 'All Eyes on' trend?

The trend began after Rafah, where most of the refugees have sought shelter from Israeli attacks in the rest of Gaza, was pounded by Israel on May 27. The attack left several tents on fire, which then swept through the area, killing more people.

As visuals of charred bodies and those with severe injuries emerged on social media, an image with the text, “All Eyes on Rafah”, started trending. The campaign, spearheaded by activists and humanitarian groups, aims to draw attention to the southern city of the Gaza Strip, where people have been forced to live in cramped refugee camps with no humanitarian aid.
