Bangladesh, Cox's Baxar, Palangkhali's area, Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, October 2017: a mother with her sick child. Most of refugee children suffer of high fever, epidermis problems and dysentery.
Rohingya: an entire population becomes stateless, without security to life, property, future.
Another genocide of our time, with many witness, but few concrete international actions to stop the violence. The history of persecution agaist Rohingya community pans decades, and is tied to issues of Myanmar's fledgling democracy, dominated by the military, growning populist xenophobia and economic-political interests. For sure, international geopolitics has further complicated the situation. Hundreds of thousands of people were tortured, raped, killed, and same numbers were forced to seek refuge beyond Myanmar's borders. Between 2017 and 2018, more than one million Rohingya arrived in Bangladesh.
