The ongoing persecution of the Rohingya in Myanmar is a result of neglect by powerful states not taking enough action to punish Myanmar.

One of the largest stateless peoples, the Rohingya—who live in west Myanmar—have been the victims of genocide and human rights abuses by the Myanmar Military since 2017.

The Rohingya are a Muslim ethnic group who are fleeing persecution from Buddhist dominant Myanmar—which does not consider Rohingya to be legal citizens.

Around 720,000 Rohingya have fled to Muslim Bangladesh to escape mass killings, torture, sexual violence, and arson. While the UN calls for military generals to be tried for crimes against humanity, and countries across the globe condemn Myanmar, these actions are titular.

Until the United States and other global powers condemn Myanmar and impose embargoes on the country along with severe geopolitical pressure and threats, the Myanmar military will continue to oppress the stateless and defenseless Rohingya.
