On the 19th June Aung San Suu Kyi Burma's democracy leader, will be spending her 65th birthday in detention and has now been detained for almost 15 years.
As of today she has been illegaly detained for a total of 14 years and 236 days. The people of Burma face daily harrasment and those that oppose the current dictatorship get regular beatings, and the youths of the nation face arbitrary arrest and false imprisonment.
Human rights violations are systematic. Their are over 2,200 political prisoners, and many laws that criminalize peacefull expression. Burma's dictator General Than Schee participates in a lavish lifestyle at the expediency to the Burmese population. The regime also holds a contentious relationship and approach to ethnic minorities.
Whoever reads this is lucky indeed, in Burma itself the Internet is severely restricted. The majority of the ordinary people of Burma still try to resist and oppose the regime,people are routinelly detained without charge or trial. Somethings gotta change.
Join the campaign to free Aung San Suu Kyi and the oppressed people of this country .
Particular campaigners for this cause are the
