Call for the immediate release of Aung San Suu Kyi and all prisoners of conscience in Myanmar

24May09

Aung San Suu Kyioriginally published: May 2009

Aung San Suu Kyi, a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, has been detained for 13 of the last 19 years, mostly under house arrest.

On May 14, 2009, Aung San Suu Kyi and two of her assistants were taken from her home to Insein Prison following an incident in which an American man allegedly swam across a lake to her house and stayed there for two days.

Reliable reports beginning in early May confirm that while still confined in her Yangon home Aung San Suu Kyi had been suffering from dehydration, low blood pressure and weight loss. Her medical condition makes her transfer to Insein Prison at this time doubly serious. Please call on Myanmar’s leaders to free Aung San Suu Kyi and all other prisoners of conscience.

    The conditions in Insein prison is allegedly among the worst in the world. If the world doesn’t act now, we risk losing Burma’s Mandela forever.
