CSO Event in Switzerland
This month marks 10 years since violence broke out in Myanmar’s Rakhine State, laying the groundwork for a decade of oppression, deprivation, and violence against the #Rohingya. The military, confident there would be no consequences for its crimes, went on to carry out more brutal and organized atrocities with total impunity. Last year, those same generals staged a coup and launched a brutal nationwide crackdown.
Join FORUM-ASIA and Human Rights Watch on a Human Rights Council 50 side event next week. The panel will discuss the root causes of the military’s atrocities, the impact of the coup on the Rohingya and other ethnic minorities, and paths for holding perpetrators accountable. The side event will take place on 27 June 2022, from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM (GMT+7) via Zoom.
