The shocking genocide of the Rohingya people is now being followed by an appalling escalation of violence involving crimes against humanity against the Kachin, a largely Christian ethnic group.
7,000 Kachin have been displaced from their homes in the past year alone, while 66 churches have been destroyed since 2011. And a recent UN report said that abuses against the Kachin (which include rape, torture, and enslavement) “undoubtedly amount to the gravest crimes under international law”.
The world must act now to protect the Kachin. Their suffering has been ignored too long.
