The term cultural genocide has been used by various organizations to describe what is happening to indigenous peoples, and what it means to be a victim of cultural genocide.
According to the definition by the United Nations, cultural genocide is “the deliberate, systematic, and/or imminent destruction or impairment of cultural, religious, linguistic, or other aspects of a society’s physical or cultural identity and/of cultural or linguistic practices or the establishment of policies and practices that are intended to harm or destroy that identity.”
To be considered a cultural genocide, it must occur through the forcible destruction of a people’s land, cultural heritage, or physical infrastructure, the establishment and use of which would constitute crimes against humanity, genocide, or crimes against the peace.
While the United States has not been formally designated as a country that has committed cultural genocide or crimes of cultural origin, its governments have consistently and consistently failed to act.
To make matters worse, the United Kingdom, France, Canada, Spain, and Australia have all been designated as nations that have committed or are responsible for the perpetration of the worst forms of ethnic cleansing.
The following is a list of countries that have failed to properly prosecute perpetrators of cultural or ethnic cleansing: Cambodia, Cambodia, Burma, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam Cambodia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Guinea, Rwanda, and Zaire.
Burma, Ethiopia and Guinea, which have been designated by the U.N. Human Rights Council as war crimes and crimes against national minorities, have been the source of a growing number of cases of ethnic violence in recent years.
These cases of widespread ethnic cleansing include cases of attacks against ethnic groups and against local populations, and the persecution of local communities, which has resulted in widespread displacement, forced labor, and forced conversion to Islam, Christianity, and Hinduism.
Burmese officials have also been responsible for ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya population, who are largely Muslims.
According the U, Cambodian authorities have systematically and systematically targeted the Rohingya by carrying out widespread raids and other acts of violence against them.
In response to these attacks, more than 200,000 Rohingya fled their homes in 2014, with many of them eventually ending up in Bangladesh.
The Burmuesian government has also forcibly repatriated hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees, with some estimates of the number of displaced persons in the country to be more than one million.
According an October 2017 report by the Office of the United Nation High Commissioner for Human Rights, the country’s police and military have engaged in extrajudicial killings of Rohingya and other communities that they consider to be members of the banned Muslim Rohingya group.
Burman authorities have also used torture and other ill-treatment against Rohingya people, including rape and genital mutilation.
In addition to the crimes of genocide and ethnic cleansing, some countries have also engaged in acts of political violence, including the suppression of the rights of journalists, the suppression or murder of journalists and other media organizations, the use of arbitrary arrest and detention of journalists in the name of fighting the “extremism” of the country, and suppression of political opposition.
According a 2016 study by the Institute for Policy Studies and Conflict Resolution (IPSCR), between 1997 and 2010, Turkey, Egypt, Israel, Syria, Pakistan, and Bangladesh imposed more than 1,300 years of political repression on the Rohingya and the other ethnic minorities in their territories, including arbitrary arrest, detention, and murder.
The IPSCR also documented at least one case of the death of a journalist in 2011 in Bangladesh, where his family was prevented from traveling to Bangladesh by government forces and his father was arrested and tortured by police and security forces.
In 2017, an investigation by the Associated Press found that Myanmar’s military had used the courts to prosecute journalists who had covered protests against the military government and to deny the government’s allegations of abuses of ethnic minorities and refugees in their country.
Myanmar has also attempted to silence opposition groups in the wake of the 2016 Rohingya crisis.
In November 2017, the military-backed government of Myanmar declared the Rohingya a terrorist organization, banned all non-government organizations that work on ethnic, religious or linguistic issues, and prohibited opposition groups from entering the country.
As of March 2018, there were at least four known cases of alleged atrocities against the Rohingya, according to the International Rescue Committee.
Amnesty International and the United Methodist Church have also documented systematic killings of Muslim Rohingya people.
Amnesty also documented the mass graves of at least 12 Muslim Rohingya women who were killed during mass protests in 2016 in Myanmar’s southern state of Rakhine.
In December 2017, at least 43 Muslim Rohingya men were killed and three women raped in the eastern city of Maungdaw in the central state of Arakan.
Myanmar authorities have been accused of carrying out a systematic campaign of extrajudicial executions, arbitrary detention, arbitrary arrests, and arbitrary detentions in the western province of Rangoon, in the southern city of Nakhon Si Thay, and in the northeast of the same province.
