Invitation: People’s Tribunal on Myanmar (September 18-22, 2017)
We would like to announce that BMF along with International Movement for a Just World (JUST) and Center for Human Rights Advocacy and Research (CENTHRA) are organizing committee for the People’s Tribunal on the Rohingyas, Kachin and other Ethnic Minorities.
|London, March 2017
The Rome-based Permanent People’s Tribunal (PPT) will hold the Concluding Session of its proceedings on the Rohingyas, the Kachins and other groups in Myanmar in Kuala Lumpur from the 18th to the 22nd of September 2017.
The Inaugural Session was held at the International State Crime Initiative, Queen Mary University of London on the 6th and 7th of March 2017. The Tribunal urged the UN and ASEAN to take swift and effective measures to stop international state crimes against the Rohingyas and Kachins, specifically. Though neither the UN nor ASEAN has responded effectively, the importance of addressing the issues confronting the two communities remains as urgent as ever.

We support and believe that this event is necessary to highlight the situation and for us to understand the what’s happening on the ground in Myanmar. With a lack of direct and formal access to document the situation, this is probably the best opportunity to appreciate the real situation for us to map out action plans.

Date: September 18-22, 2017,
