Rohingya Genocide Debate: YouTube video

Left to right: Adv Shabnam Mayet, Judge Richard Goldstone, David P. Kramer, and Michael Schmidt

The Ulu Club for Southern African Conflict Journalists and the Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre hosted a film and debate on 14 November 2018 on the ongoing Rohingya Genocide. Following a screening of the Frontline documentary Myanmar's Killing Fields (here), as Ulu Club convenor I chaired the panel of Judge Richard Goldstone (former chief prosecutor, International Criminal Tribunals on the former Yugoslavia and on Rwanda),l Advocate Shabnam Mayet (activist with Protect the Rohingya), and David P. Kramer (former activist with the Free Burma Campaign). My blog post on the event is here. The video of the debate is here.
