PEOPLE are dying trying to escape

With your support, we can stop the violence and end the suffering.

Shara was badly burned when her home was set on fire by the Myanmar military.

UPDATE: Aung San Suu Kyi has demonstrated that she and her government are still burying their heads in the sand over the horrors unfolding in Rakhine State, Myanmar. There is overwhelming evidence that security forces are engaged in a campaign of ethnic cleansing.

There’s no denying it. Satellite evidence shows that now more than 80 villages in the Rakhine State of Myanmar have been set ablaze. This is a targeted attempt to harm already vulnerable Rohingya families. We must act now.

Family homes, neighborhoods and entire villages  – torched to the ground. And as terrified families flee for their lives, many have been killed.

Because the Myanmar military are shooting people as they try to escape.

Today, Rohingya people are being targeted and killed in Myanmar.

Every day thousands of families have been forced to cross the border in search of safety in Bangladesh.

But people are still trapped in Myanmar, unable to escape the violence.

They’re traumatised and exhausted with nowhere to go.  Many people, including children, are injured.

The military continues to restrict access to humanitarian organisations in northern Rakhine State including medical aid and food.

The Amnesty crisis team have been on the ground in Bangladesh documenting and monitoring the situation. We urgently need your support to continue this critical work and ensure their safety.

We’ve been exposing the violence and abuse towards the Rohingya people in both Myanmar and Bangladesh for more than 20 years.

Just last year we exposed the horrific torture, rape and abduction of men, women and children at the hands of Myanmar security forces.

This is by far the worst crisis we’ve seen in Myanmar.

It’s clear what has to happen next. The international community must put pressure on Myanmar to end its campaign of violence, we can’t look away.

We can’t abandon them.
