One of the tools the Burmese government uses to drive the Rohingya out of Burma is to deliberately impoverish them, and to block aid to the 140,000 people living in squalid camps after fleeing their homes in 2012.
Join us in calling on UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to personally take the lead in negotiating free humanitarian access in Rakhine State, where most Rohingya live.
In 2008 after Cyclone Nargis struck, leaving hundreds of thousands of people in desperate need of aid, the generals refused to allow international aid in. Ban Ki-moon helped negotiate a deal to lift many restrictions. He has done it before; he needs to do it again. Children are dying because the Burmese government is stopping aid.
