Suu Kyi to be released soon?

I have written 2 articles on Myanmar or Burma as was formerly known. One, The Burmese way to Facism, was written in 2007, and the other, Help the Burmese, was written in 2008.

The first article was reposted in some o f the Burmese blog’s and i have received emails from Burmese thanking me for highlighting their problems.

In Myanmar, the army is the BIg Brother. They control everything, from freedom (or rather making sure that there is none) of speech, businesses and even food. Those in the army were well rewarded with luxuries and money, like some of the warlords here.

In many African countries , the same thing happens. BUt Myanmar people they are luckier because they have a freedom fighter in Aung San Suu Kyi. Any lesser person would have crumpled under the continued harrassment of the military junta and she has been detained under house arrest for more than 15 years in the last 2 decades. Just imagine, if we are sick and stay at home for a week, we would feel so bored and would have gone out at the slightest excuse. Imagine a person who was kept in the same house on and off for 2 decades. Most people would have given up their own ideals long ago and would be properly rewarded with riches and land and so on.

SHe fully deserves her NObel prize, and she is one person who, despite her small and thin physique, is actually larger than most of us..

There is now news that she would be released soon.

I hope this is true, and I hope that with her release, she would continue her journey and succeed in bringing freedom to her people one day.

    Best wishes to Aung San Suu Kyi. She is indeed an icon of Myanmar. She is an elite but willing to sacrifice her comfortable life for well being of Burmese. She epitomes strength and courage without even speak up.

    Suu Kyi is prepared to fight on against all odds for democracy in Myanmar. Will Gerakan leaders prepared to even speak out for democracy in Malaysia ? What can be seen is …the silence is deafening !

    Gerakanians are just like the beggars shown in the photo above, the only difference is they are all adults not children. I don’t mean to insult but your ex president confessed such was the reality.

    Aung San Suu Kyi finally reunite with her son after a decade. Its the greatest joy to a mother who were denied the opportunity to be with her love one. Can we imagine the agony she went through for the past 2 decades? Courage need not be portrayed through expression or voice as Suu Kyi’s silence penetrated everyone’s heart. 沉默的力量与母性的光辉从她眼里透出。
