Call It Genocide: Act for the Rohingya

With the backing of nearly 9,000 signatures, Refugees International transmitted a petition to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on August 25, urging him to finally call Myanmar’s brutal and systematic crimes against the Rohingya genocide. The petition made clear that such a designation would promote accountability, help to deter further atrocities, keep faith with the Rohingya people, and demonstrate U.S. leadership on this critical issue.
