We started this petition to hold those in charge to account through the International Criminal Court (ICC). We crowdfunded to put pressure on the United Nations, we protested outside Downing Street and we also have gotten in-touch with International Lawyers to pursue an investigation to put on pressure. A year later, the UN have released a report saying that 6 of top military leaders should be investigated for genocide and other crimes against humanity. Although they say that it should be referred to the ICC, a monument and rare step, the referral still needs the backing of the permanent five Security Council members - and may be rejected.

That’s why we need to add as much pressure as possible to show that this issue cannot be ignored. Please sign this petition to add public pressure so that the people responsible for destroying lives are actually held accountable.

More than 10,000 Rohingya Muslims have been murdered. Over 700,000 Rohingya have been displaced. We as the humankind have to take action because they are innocent people that don't deserve this. The Rohingya community is being ethnically cleaned as the army and the government deems (Islam) a foreign.

The OHCHR also noted that “more than half of the women its human rights team interviewed reported having suffered rape or other forms of sexual violence. Many other interviewees reported witnessing killings, including of family members and having family who were missing.”

When I started this petition, the UN said that war crimes having been committed was “very likely.” Now, they say genocide must investigated. Myanmar’s leader Aung Sang Su Kyi should also be held accountable. This is not easy but we are getting closer. The Rohingya community are still suffering - justice is needed - history will wonder how we have allowed this to happen. We say never again.

The enforcement of the UN’s findings would go a long way in ensuring justice for the Rohingya people alongside other vulnerable minorities.

Please help us to convince the International Criminal Court to investigate by signing this petition. r0 · /> · Privacy policy
