More than 600,000 Rohingya have fled Myanmar to Bangladesh
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.Learn more: Military’s mass grave admission exposes extrajudicial executions of Rohingya - Jan 10 REPORT: Rohingya trapped in dehumanising apartheid regime - Nov 20OPEN LETTER: Trudeau Must Raise Grave Human Rights Issues in Philippines, Viet Nam and Myanmar during Visit to the Region - Nov 10REPORT: “MY WORLD IS FINISHED” - Rohingya targeted in crimes against humanity in Myanmar - Oct 18Myanmar: New evidence of systematic campaign of crimes against humanity to terrorize and drive Rohingya out - Oct 17Myanmar: ASEAN must do more to tackle Rohingya crisis - Oct 6Myanmar / Bangladesh: Rohingya refugees must not be forced home to abuse and discrimination - Oct 4Myanmar: UN Security Council must impose arms embargo - Sept 28Thailand: Hard line on refugees leaves thousands vulnerable and at risk - Sept 28Video and satellite evidence show new fires still torching Rohingya villages - Sept 22Aung San Suu Kyi burying her head in the sand about Rakhine horrors - Sept 19Rohingya crisis: Bangladesh should take help from global community to tide over humanitarian disaster - Sept 18
