Leeds Labour statement on Rohingya crisis

We are extremely concerned by reports of ethnic cleansing and condemn the actions of the Burmese Government towards the ethnic minority Rohingya population.

We call on the UK Government to send humanitarian support to the hundreds of thousands of people who have been forced to flee their homes.

We further support calls in Parliament for the UK government to suspend Britain’s involvement in training Burmese military forces.
