This is the US Campaign for Burma’s fifteenth monthly On-The-Ground in Burma briefer! This month’s briefer will review the recent U.S. genocide determination and the necessary steps to turn the Rohingya genocide recognition into action, as well as share a response from leaders from the Rohingya Women’s Development Network (RWDN), Karenni National Women’s Organization (KNWO), and the Karen Human Rights Group (KHRG).

This month’s briefer includes:

  • April highlights
  • An in-depth analysis on the U.S. genocide determination and the necessary steps moving forward
  • Four major policy recommendations
  • Responses to the genocide determination from the RWDN, KNWO, and the KHRG
  • An overview of IDP issues and rights abuses in each ethnic state and central Burma

As the conflict escalates in Burma between the pro-junta militias, anti-coup forces, and the military, so has the violence and rights deprivations in ethnic regions and central Burma. Without strong tangible action, the Burmese junta will continue to commit crimes against humanity with impunity.
