Blurred flower

I've said I know women will change the world. I've said I know beauty will change the world. Since the days my mother fought for saving my father's life, in the way she did, I _know_ that will happen: I've seen it.

The awarded Nobel prize for peace (Daw) Aung San Suu Kyi (click to visit her site), stays under house arrest for the third time since 2003 , she was denied to see her family, she was denied the general election winning by 82% of the votes, she has around of twelve years arrested in total. The military wants to shut this words from her: "by fighting fear can you truly be free", and "please, use your liberty to promote ours".
Since december 2004, her security has been removeed by the military forces; telephone lines cut, and no visitors allowed. Her situation is very precarious, as the one of the burmese country.

Aung San Suu Kyi is not as renown as she must be. And the terms of her arrest only intends to blur her image out of the media and public opinion, where she is a strong voice of conscience and morals.

On september 29th, around 75 students and parents were massacrated in State High School Nº2, Tamwe in Rangoon, city where she is under arrest. Schools across the U.S. are organizing, for today October the 5th, to send a petition to Chinese President Hu Jintao signed to tell China to stop paralyzing UN Security Council action. Your school and you can take action by clicking here.

Tomorrow October 6th is a day of action in major cities around the globe, watch if there are events around your area by clicking here, or sign up to organize one if you want.

If you are a US citizen, demand the UN secretary immediate action and freedom for Aung San Suu Kyi by clicking here.

Do not let Burmese people or Aung San Suu Kyi to get blurred in the memory.
