Rohingya's story is another genocide of our time, a Muslim minority living in north Rakhine region, a small state of Myanmar, were denied citizenship by a law enacted by its military government, so reducing their status to that of a stateless group. They were denied the right to own land or property and exposed them also to forced labour and routine violence, as rape and killings. Since 2017 more than 800,00 Rohingya crossed the border with Bangladesh. This is not an event from the past. It's happening.
