Dear Mr. Zuckerberg
I call on you to take responsibility, through effective and meaningful remedy, for your company’s contribution to the atrocities committed against the Rohingya people in Myanmar. Meta’s algorithms amplified anti-Rohingya incitement, fuelling the Myanmar military’s violence.
Maung Sawyeddollah and his family were forced to flee Myanmar in 2017, when he was only 15 -years old. Since Meta enabled hatred and discrimination against Rohingya people to thrive on the Facebook platform, Sawyeddollah and his community are calling on your company to pay reparations and fund education programmes in Cox’s Bazar refugee camp in Bangladesh, where they now reside.
Sawyeddollah believes that education will help rebuild the shattered lives of people in his community.
