Myanmar Rohingya – Military Land Grab

The world calls on Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi to denounce the slaughter forcing the Rohingya from Myanmar, but it gives a free ride to General Min Aung Hlaing, the country’s globe-trotting army chief and actual ruling power, whose army is making a grab for the resources. Two media women who work with Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh and Malaysia talk in depth about the attacks and the refugee issues.


Parsa Sanjana Sajid is a writer, editor, and researcher in Bangladesh. She teaches at the Independent University, Bangladesh and edits Fragments magazine. Mahi Ramakrishnan is a film maker in Malaysia, who has been covering the Rohingya crisis for many years, and has made three documentaries about the issue.
