courageous, strong and free at last - again...

Aung San Suu Kyi has been released 'unconditionally' according to all reports... 

it's been a hard-fought-for outcome by the long-suffering people of burma / myanmar,  and human rights supporters worldwide...

but you have to wonder what ulterior motive lies behind the military junta's decision to end the 7-year house arrest of the country's most notable human rights advocate, freedom fighter and nobel peace prize laureate... after all, an appeal against her detention was rejected by the supreme court in february, and her latest appeal on november 11 was also rejected... perhaps after 'winning' the sham of an election on november 7  (the 'fifth phase' of the junta's roadmap to democracyan extension of her detention order (which expired on november 13 anyway!) would have been seen as counter to their 'roadmap' (and proven their lack of 'commitment' to the democratic process) - oh, it probably would have caused worldwide outrage too!!!

since co-founding the national league for democracy in 1988 aung san suu kyi has spent 15 out of the last 22 years in detention (see timeline) so it's highly unlikely that the fraudulent 'government' will allow her to resume her political activities as leader of the nld 'regardless' -hmmm, guess we'll just have to wait and see how threatened they feel by her and what 'freedom' they allow her...


aung san suu kyi - a strong, courageous womon...

What is the real reason behind this exhibition of a woman who has defied her male captors?
Myanmar can it really pose a threat via the stoic behaviour of one brave female?

the future as she has announced is for all of Myanmar to rally forth for it country, its soul and its future
