The Rohingya people in Burma (Myanmar) have suffered repeated genocidal attacks by the Burmese military. They are not recognised as citizens of Burma (Myanmar) despite having lived there for centuries. There are Rohingya refugees in detention on Nauru and Manus Island. This forum will discuss the history of repression against the Rohingya people, the current situation, and solidarity actions to help stop the genocide.
