IN August 2017, the world was shocked when the Myanmar (Burma) military launched a horrific campaign of violence the country’s Rohingya people.

Villages were burnt to the ground, women were raped, thousands murdered, and the Rohingya were forced to flee to neighbouring Bangladesh.

A United Nations investigation team has called for senior military officials to be investigated and prosecuted for crimes against humanity, war crimes and genocide.

Now, two years on, hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees are still trapped in crowded camps in Bangladesh.

We urgently need our Government and others to step up to ensure accountability for military atrocities, push Myanmar to restore rights for the Rohingya, and support refugees in Bangladesh.
