Do Rohingyas Have a Place in Myanmar’s Revolution?

Ro Nay San Lwin, Rohingya Activist

Do Rohingyas Have a Place in Myanmar’s Revolution?

There is a revolution ongoing in Myanmar. The people of Myanmar of various political ideologies and regions are engaging in civil disobedience and have also taken up arms against the military junta. There’s been talk about forging a new constitution and building a new Myanmar beyond and free from the junta. 

But where do the ethnic minority Rohingyas fit into this picture? After all, the Rohingya people have been subject to oppression, dispossession and genocide for decades, even before the recent coup. Millions of displaced Rohingyas are refugees in various parts of the world. We speak to Ro Nay San Lwin, a Rohingya activist, who’s currently based in Germany.
