The Rohingya, described by the U.N. as the world's most persecuted people, have faced heightened fears of attack since dozens were killed in communal violence in 2012.

The 1.1 million Rohingya have faced decades of discrimination in Buddhist-majority Myanmar and been denied citizenship since 1982, which has effectively rendered them stateless.

Rights groups have accused the U.N. Security Council of dragging its feet on Myanmar and are calling for tougher measures such as an arms embargo and targeted sanctions against those responsible for the attacks against the Rohingya.

A recent report by the U.N. human rights office accused Myanmar of seeking to permanently expel the Rohingya, by planting land mines at the border with Bangladesh where the refugees are sheltering.

So, we call on everyone around the world to sign the petition to help us raise awareness about the persecution Rohingya Muslims are facing right now and to pressure governments and international organizations to take action against the human rights violences being committed in the Rakhine state.
