United Nations Makes Empty Resolutions for Myanmar Genocide

United Nations Makes Empty Resolutions For Myanmar Genocide

By Katie Johanson

It has become increasingly difficult to manage the intake of information on war in the news. A large majority find it difficult to sift through the mass amounts of information that is being presented in the media. There are stories that unintentionally have little coverage in the general media.

Myanmar has been in a state of intense civil war since 2021 and has been the crux of shifting public unrest for years prior to it. The civil war does not begin to touch on the unethical transgressions in Myanmar that have been actively stirring for years longer than the official start of the civil war. An ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslims that can only be described as genocidal in nature has resulted in the killing of approximately 10,000 Rohingya men, women, children, and babies, according to the United Nations. 700,000 Rohingya Muslims fled Myanmar to seek refuge in Bangladesh. Thousands of people are being killed in Myanmar, and people are unaware of this humanitarian issue. The growing prevalence of global issues due to the conflict in Gaza and Ukraine has both aided in awareness while hindering the process of getting information on such events.

Tom Andrews, who is the special rapporteur on the ongoing conflict that is going on in Myanmar, highlighted the severity of the situation. Andrews emphasized the direness of this genocide, and the danger of inaction, criticizing the UN for its lack of resolutions to the genocide. “The Rohingya are tired of empty promises. Their children cannot eat political rhetoric or UN resolutions that go nowhere. They need and deserve the world to end the deadly paralysis of indifference.”
