A new film released by Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit has revealed Myanmar state documents showing the use of hate speech and the incitement of anti-Muslim riots and sentiments. These documents, along with eyewitness accounts and expert testimony, have led a clinic at Yale University Law School to say there is “strong evidence” the government of Myanmar is coordinating a genocide against the Rohingya people. The clinic is also calling on the UN Human Rights Council for an “urgent, comprehensive and independent investigation.”
