The Myanmar Army must end its campaign of violence in Rakhine State and put an end to crimes against humanity.  

Systematic, organized and ruthless attacks against the Rohingya people in Rakhine State have amounted to ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.  The Myanmar military killed Rohingya women, men and children; raped Rohingya women and girls; and burnt entire Rohingya villages to the ground.


More than a half million Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh.  Those who stay behind are still at risk.  Myanmar’s authorities are restricting their access to lifesaving humanitarian aid and assistance. The Rohingya continue to live under a system of institutionalized discrimination and segregation which amounts to apartheid.

No one has been held to account for these atrocities. The Myanmar authorities are trying to stop the world from seeing what’s actually happening on the ground. 

These crimes against humanity must end and the system of apartheid must be dismantled.

Dear Minister Freeland:

Canada must play a role in bringing an end to the human rights atrocities against the Rohingya people. Please insist that Myanmar end the campaign of violence and crimes against humanity and dismantle the system of apartheid. Myanmar must provide free and unimpeded access to Rakhine state for to humanitarian actors such as: the UN, independent journalists and human rights monitors and ensure their safety and security.  

Yours sincerely,
