About Our History

In June 2012, Myanmar armed forces launched a renewed genocidal operations against Rohingya ethnic group in Arakan. Hundreds of Rohingya people were massacred while thousands of residential and religious infrastructures that belong to Rohingya people were burnt down or destroyed. As a result, more than 150000 people were forced to move out of their villages and relocated to concentration-like camps in Sittwe.

As genocidal operation against Rohingya continues, prominent Rohingya scholars, activists and concerned individuals living in Europe organize an emergency roundtable meeting in Esbjerg, Denmark in 6 – 7 October 2012.

Out of the roundtable meeting, The European Rohingya Council (ERC) was born with a noble mission to serve Rohingya people and to take every possible measures to stop Myanmar’s destruction of Rohingya ethnic people of Myanmar.

WHO ARE THE ROHINGYA

In 1982, Myanmar enacted a new citizenship law which suddenly makes Rohingya stateless in own ancestral land. The genocidal operations continue until today.
