In this action we are reaching out to Telenor to ask them to take a stand to help stop the Rohingya genocide and win them back their citizenship.
Over the past few years, Telenor has invested $1.5 billion in Myanmar and plans to invest more. It already has 17 million subscribers to its telephone network and 85,000 points of sale across Myanmar, with plans for further growth.
Telenor has a taken strong stance on ethical matters and sustainability. It has declared 2017 to be a year in which they will focus on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal number 10, that of “Reduced Inequalities”.

Guidelines: Please be polite. Thank Telenor for their strong ethical standing and encourage them to use their voice for the Rohingya. Let them know it is their responsibility and in their best interest to speak out against ethnic cleansing, crimes against humanity and acts of genocide taking place in Myanmar.
