Report by United To End Genocide
In ‘Marching to Genocide in Burma’, United to End Genocide find that deteriorating conditions have put Burma on a downward trajectory that could end in the world’s next genocide without immediate action by the international community.
Documented murderous attacks fomented by radical Buddhist monks have killed hundreds, forced tens of thousands to flee the country, and driven 140,000 into internally displaced persons (IDP) camps. The government of Burma has ordered the Nobel Peace Laureate organization Doctors Without Borders to shut down all medical care operations in Rakhine State, home to an estimated 800,000 Rohingya, including the camps.
Nowhere in the world are there more known precursors to genocide than in Burma today. Hundreds have been killed with a death toll mounting daily, tens of thousands have fled under the most hazardous conditions, and 140,000 have been forced into horrible, overcrowded camps where they face severe restrictions and are denied basic necessities including medical care.
The situation in Burma could soon result in genocide if the international community fails to act immediately.
