This is ethnic cleansing unfolding before our eyes

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.

Entire villages have been burned

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.
