TAKE ACTION – Rohingya
The Rohingya community in Burma continues to suffer at the hands of the Burmese military. They are subjected to systematic violence, crimes against humanity and horrific abuse. Due to this brutal campaign of violence and repression, over 727,000 Rohingya have fled from their native Rakhine state in Burma to Bangladesh. The United States has an obligation to ensure the rights, safety and dignity of the Rohingya population are protected.
For decades, the Burmese military has effectively institutionalized discrimination against the ethnic group to the point where the United Nations (U.N.) has deemed them the “most oppressed people in the world.”
It is vital that the United States Act act now to end the Burmese army’s repression and violence of the ethnic Rohingya and other vulnerable minority communities.
