Several companies from the U.S., U.K., France, Switzerland, and China have been added to a "dirty list" compiled of corporations accused of human rights or environmental violations in Myanmar, reports the Guardian. Also added to the list are companies allegedly involved with the country's military, which has been accused of genocide.
The list, created by U.K.-based company Burma Campaign, names several tech companies, primarily Facebook, that have either provided arms, infrastructure, technology, engineering, or services to the Burmese military or contributed to environmental destruction through mining and hydroelectric dams.
The organization names Facebook on the list as it "consistently allowed its platform to be used to incite hatred and violence [against] minorities in Burma, in particular the Rohingya Muslim minority and Muslims in general."
It is not the first time that Facebook has been accused of allowing hateful, racially inflammatory, and unregulated content on its site. Data collection carried out by the United Nations has found that Facebook is responsible for stoking ethnic tensions, especially in Myanmar, and that they have allowed harmful content to continue unchecked for years.
