Um an dieser Stelle einen Rohingya aus den den Camps in Bangladesch sprechen zu lassen, der mir im Juli hierzu gesagt hat: "Das jahrelange Schweigen der internationalen Gemeinschaft jedenfalls hat zu nichts geführt, so viel steht fest."

Absolutely, Matt. No label would legally commit them. But it should *morally*. Though that's also not always given of course - thinking of the French President who threw the term genocide around last year and has gone rather quiet ever since. Either way, let's hope for the best.

The US quietly released their long-awaited report on the atrocities against the Rohingya, shying away from labels that would commit them to action. At least 1000 victims had to relive their trauma for this investigation. I'd say they deserve more.

Wrongdoing so easily labeled fake news these days. Gladly the world isn't only full of fake news, but also of forensic tools to investigate claims. strikes back in Cameroon.

Locals - doctors, social workers, teachers, interpreters - form the backbone of the refugee response. They have been there through multiple influxes, and expect to remain even long after staff at intl groups have moved on. Though, they have no say.

While its military is accused of a genocide, the Myanmar Tourism Marketing Association last weekend merrily launched new branding: « Be enchanted ». Challenges with Myanmar’s image? Not adressed. EU still seen as a main target group. Arrivals from West dramatically dropped.

“Journalist?” asked a Heathrow security officer, pointing at my laptop sticker. “Yes,” I replied. “It’s to show solidarity for two colleagues arrested in Myanmar.” He said: “Yeah, I know. The Rohingya.”

"Not For Non-Buddhist" An apartheid act of employer, discriminating race and religion for employment. Such similar acts are spreading like wild fire among Burmese Buddhist extremist groups. Educated Myanmar employers stating that it is breaching the codes of T&C.

When people are trying to "point" the "miscarriage of justice" just as DASSK suggested in Hanoi, this is what happens.

Every single day, reading the news, I am thinking back of this American dude who in 2016 explained to me that he doesn't bother to vote in the elections, because "Trump or not, what would change"?

There are camps not only in Bangladesh: More than 120.000 Rohingya in Myanmar's Rakhine State are confined to areas they are not allowed to leave. Important footage from UN's as it has become basically impossible for intl + local journos to visit and get footage out

The Official Secrets Act has provisions that make violations of the right to free expression legally permissible. ASSK’s refusal to grasp basic concepts of the rule of law & human rights makes a mockery of herself & everything a generation fighting the same oppression stood for.
