“There needs to be a more realistic path to citizenship for the Rohingya,” says @EUAmbSchmidt to the @IrrawaddyNews. Like an end to the NVC process and amending the 1982 citizenship law? https://t.co/NrxAZFwWKt

"This is not in line with the law," Abdul Rasheed said of the authorities’ decision to prevent him from running for a seat in #Myanmar parliament. “The Rohingya are being degraded so we cannot compete." Story by @AFP #MyanmarElections #Rohingya #Genocide https://t.co/YmbA7Cvz0B

Quoted @matthewfsmith

I'd like to see #Facebook employees organize themselves to pressure management to share evidence on the #Rohingya #genocide in #Myanmar. The company has evidence that should be shared with relevant courts & accountability mechanisms. It's refusing to do so.

Very much agree. #Facebook should not be protecting the Myanmar officials who used the platform to incite violence against the Rohingya. https://t.co/dA536VKbNh

⁦.@tunkhin80⁩ said the “evidence Facebook sits on could be crucial”. @matthewfsmith said FB was “telling states that even in an instance of genocide, their communications and data are secure and won’t be shared with prosecutors or law enforcement”. https://t.co/0gvxSF3FTl
