Co-founder & Vice President of Runner Bangladesh Raif Iftikhar representing our organisation in The Berlin Conference on Myanmar Genocide addressed our view on Myanmar's crisis with Rohingyas. Prominent international human rights activists, UN officials and world known academicians discussed this issue in the presence of numerous world leaders.
The conference aimed to inform the German civil-societies and the European public about the ongoing genocide of Rohingya people in Myanmar/Burma. It is hoped that the conference will be able to help influence public opinion, which in turn will demand that the EU leaders take their shared political and human responsibility to make the call “Never Again!” a reality.
Five independent academic and legal studies of Myanmar’s persecution and plight of the Rohingya – including the Permanent Peoples Tribunal, Session on Myanmar, the United State Holocaust Memorial Museum, Allard K. Lowenstein International Human Rights Clinic at Yale Law School, the International State Crime Initiative of Queen Mary University of London and the Pacific Rim Law and Policy Journal of the University of Washington School of Law – have arrived at a single common conclusion: There is “mounting evidence of a genocide” against the Rohingya.
