At his September address to the Human Rights Council, Tom Andrews (United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Myanmar) noted credible information that the Myanmar junta were moving tens of thousands of troops and heavy weaponry to the north and northwest of the country, adding that ?these tactics are ominously reminiscent of those employed by the military before its genocidal attacks against the Rohingya in Rakhine state?.

Join Andrews in conversation with Promise Institute Executive Director Kate Mackintosh about how to avert another catastrophe in Myanmar.
