This is the September 26, 2018 hearing titled "Genocide Against the Burmese Rohingya," held before the U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Edward Royce: "For more than three decades, the Government of Burma has systematically denied the Rohingya people even the most basic human rights. Add to that no access to education and no access to healthcare. Last year, this persecution reached a new low, horrific levels, as the Burmese military drove 700,000 Rohingya from their homes, burning villages and killing scores, doing so-called 'terrorist clearance operations.' That's what the military calls it as they drive people to their death. [...] I believe that a realistic accounting of the deliberate campaign of murder, of intimidation, and displacement against the Rohingya clearly meets this legal standard for genocide. Making a formal determination of genocide must be the next step for the U.S. Defining these atrocities for what they are is critical to building international public awareness and support to stop them." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Greta Van Susteren and Stephen Pomper.
