Right now the Burmese military is engaged in another military offensive against Rohingya civilians. Rohingya sources believe that since August 25th more than a thousand people have been killed, including children. More than 10,000 homes have been burnt down by the military. More than 150,000 people are fleeing for their lives.
It has been described as a scorched earth policy, leaving nothing for people to return to, cleansing the area. Reports are also starting to come through of soldiers raping women.
The British government is providing free training to the military in Burma. Last year they spent £300,000 of taxpayers’ money, some of it from the aid budget, training the same army which is now committing crimes against humanity.
Tell the British government to stop training the criminal Burmese Army.
