Free The Lady

Aung San Suu KyiAs I'm sure you all know, Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi has been rearrested on the orders of those cowardly Burmese generals who are terrified of what she represents: their downfall. The pretext? Some Yankee Mormon fruitcake swam across a nearby lake to say "Howdy"! Is he in the pay of the generals? the CIA? or merely wanting her to join the Church of Latter Day Saints? Whatever his motivation, he gave the generals the excuse they so desperately needed. Avaaz has organised a petition to be sent to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon calling on him to make the release of Aung San Suu Kyi and all political prisoners in Burma a top priority. The petition will be presented on 26 May. Click the title link to sign it. Latest news: CLICK.

Hi, Anna

This injustice makes one feel so powerless. The petition may not do much, but what else can one do? The generals have at least allowed some international observers into the trial. So they must yielding to pressure. The more pressure, the better.
