Suu Kyi "celebrates" her birthday under house arrest

UPDATE: June 19 is the birthday of the Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Aung San Suu Kyi. She celebrates her 60 birthday under the house arrest. More than 2000 days she detained under the house arrest by the military junta. That is the shame on the military junta and who ever support, allowed and approve their legitimacy as the ruler in Burma.

As a human rights, democracy and peace advocates, we can't allow this kind of oppression to be continue in Burma. The legitimacy of the Burmese government should be the National League for Democracy (NLD) who were won the 1990's General Election. The military junta just blatantly violate the people's will and decision.

Protests around the world!

Different protest actions were carried by different groups in the world main cities. From the Philippine to United States, Malaysia to United Kingdom and India etc. They paid tribute to Suu Kyi and call for her immediate release. Suu Kyi as the living symbol of non violent to resist the oppression is highly respected by the leaders of the world.

The ASA also call for her immediate release and restore the democracy system in Burma. With the close working relationship with the All-Burma Student Democratic Front and other groups from Burma, the ASA will continue the campaign to free Aung San Suu Kyi. Our members from different countries can hold their program and solidarity support to the Burmese democratization movement.

With the pressures towards the military junta around the world, we believe our goals will be achieved one day. The illegitimate government have to step down and return the power to the people to decide for their future.

Longlive International Solidarity!
Free Aung San Suu Kyi Now!
Democracy Now in Burma!
