4: Rohingya Genocide Remembrance Day

The Coalition promotes the commemoration by local governments of 25 August as an annual Rohingya Genocide Remembrance Day. Myanmar makes the claim, unverified by any independent organisation, that on 25 August, the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) attacked 30 police outposts and killed a dozen policemen. This claim is widely considered by the UN, researchers and scholars as an invented pretext Myanmar relies upon to justify its forced transfer of more than 700,000 Rohingya to Bangladesh and commission of numerous mass atrocity crimes in the process.
