Stand up for Aung San Suu Kyi!
This week, Aung San Suu Kyi faces her oppressors in a “trial” that could land her in jail for five years. The trial comes just days before she was due to be released from house arrest, and is held at Rangoon’s notorious Insein prison.
The charges brought against Aung San Suu Kyi carry a maximum jail term of five years, which she would most likely spend in horrible conditions in this hellhole of a prison. According to Amnesty International, her health is at risk, and five years of torture and abuse in Insein could spell disaster.
Write an e-mail to general Than Shwe, leader of the Burmese military junta, and urge him to free Aung San Suu Kyi immediately!
