Thank you for your ongoing support as an Amnesty Human Rights Defender. Your regular gifts and actions help expose the violence and abuse like that see in Myanmar and Bangladesh all over the world.
The Amnesty Crisis Team has been on the ground in Bangladesh documenting and monitoring the situation from the beginning.
We have gathered first-hand evidence that has proven to the world that this was a planned, deliberate campaign of ethnic cleansing.
CAMPAIGN UPDATE: Right now the 650,000 people who survived the targeted violence in Myanmar are still in Bangladesh.
The government of Bangladesh announced last week that it will postpone the return of Rohingya refugees to Myanmar. This is a welcome relief for hundreds of thousands people currently living in refugee camps in Bangladesh.
As it stands, this ‘return agreement’ could put the safety and rights of more than 650,000 Rohingya people – who fled a brutal military crackdown last year – in serious jeopardy.
Amnesty believes that any arrangement on returns must first address the conditions within Myanmar that the Rohingya have fled from.
With your ongoing support, we will continue campaigning hard to stop the repatriation until these conditions meet the standards for safe, voluntary and dignified returns of Rohingya refugees.
