Genocide

The Burmese military massacred Rohingya families, raped women and girls, and razed entire villages. Now Facebook is refusing to share the evidence which could prove that the military intended to commit genocide.

Let's raise a huge global outcry and demand that Facebook stop covering up these heinous crimes!

Take Action!

A,

Three years ago, the Burmese military massacred Rohingya families, raped women and girls, and razed entire villages. 800,000 people were forced to flee to Bangladesh and are still facing a major humanitarian crisis.

Hate speech and disinformation about the Rohingya spread like wildfire on Facebook and fanned the flames of this genocide. Facebook took down much of the violence-inciting content, but now it's refusing to share the evidence which could prove that the Burmese military intended to commit genocide against the Rohingya.

But with Facebook under increasing scrutiny from the public and even its own employees, it could... buckle under pressure. Let’s demand that Facebook stop covering up genocide, and when 100,000 join, SumOfUs will run ads showing that Mark Zuckerberg has blood on his hands unless he acts.

Tell Facebook: stop covering up genocide -- share the evidence!

One of Facebook’s major problems is that it is not equipped to deal with how fast it’s growing around the world. In Burma, “the internet” is synonymous with “Facebook”, but the company doesn't have systems in place to monitor and act as hate speech and disinformation spread across its groups and pages.

Now Facebook is claiming the information requested is way too broad in scope, when in reality it’s quite specific and reasonable. Plus, much of the content was already public, so concerns around privacy don’t quite hold -- especially in the case of genocide, which is considered humanity's most heinous crime and should trump privacy concerns.

Right now this issue is mostly being discussed by Rohingya groups. If we raise the alarm and show Zuckerberg the whole world is watching, we can help bring justice to the desperate Rohingya community.

Tell Facebook to share the evidence of genocide in Burma!

The list of shameful and problematic issues with Facebook is endless. But that’s why we’re here and that’s why we’ll keep showing up. Let’s do it again and finally use it to hold these murderers to account.
