Three years ago, the Burmese military massacred Rohingya families, raped women and girls, and razed entire villages. 800,000 people were forced to flee to Bangladesh and are now facing a major humanitarian crisis.
Hate speech and disinformation about the Rohingya spread like wildfire on Facebook and fanned the flames of this genocide. Facebook took down much of the violence-inciting content, but now it's refusing to share the evidence which could prove that the Burmese military intended to commit genocide against the Rohingya.
But with Facebook under increasing scrutiny from the public and even its own employees, it could buckle under pressure. Let’s demand that Facebook stop covering up genocide, and when 100,000 join, SumOfUs will run ads showing that Mark Zuckerberg has blood on his hands unless he acts.
