The Best Birthday Present For AUNG SAN SUU KYI by Burma Democratic Concern

Dear All Friends,

In honour of Burma’s Legitimate Leader Aung San Suu Kyi’s 64th Birthday, Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) will recall Aung San Suu Kyi’s dictum for 64 days.

Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) is the global campaigning and lobbying organisation to restore democracy and human rights in Burma where everyone can enjoy freedom of speech, press, beliefs, assembly and rule of law that emphasizes the protection of individual rights.

We would like to encourage everyone to post Aung San Suu Kyi’s dictum on your profile on 19 June 2009 to honour Aung San Suu Kyi who bravely fight against injustice. You can get Aung San Suu Kyi’s dictum here
Burma’s democracy leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, was born on 19 June 1945. Her father Bogyoke Aung San is the architect of Burma’s independence and her mother is (Daw) Khin Kyi.

Aung San Suu Kyi, Mohandas Gandhi of BURMA, will turn 64 on June 19, 2009 inside Burma’s notorious Insein Prison.
Military regime repeatedly extended her detention and she spent 14 of last 20 years under house arrest. Since junta did not want to release her when her 6 years detention was about to complete, junta plotted the ploy to imprison her.

Ruling junta who suppress the Burma today knows very well that all the justice loving people are standing behind her and so junta is using dirty tricks in order to silence Aung San Suu Kyi by planning to lock her behind bars indefinitely.

Aung San Suu Kyi is not only the icon of the Burmese people’s struggle for freedom but also the symbol of non-violent movement in the world at large. We salute her courage and sacrifices for the sake of oppressed people.

Aung San Suu Kyi gives us hope, confidence and faith in our aspiration for democracy.

Junta claimed that it will hand over power after 1990 elections but when Aung San Suu Kyi’s party NLD won landslide victory, they ignore to transfer power. In order to nullify 1990 election result, junta planned to hold sham election in 2010 which is designed to legitimize military rule in Burma.

Aung San Suu Kyi MUST be the Prime Minister of Burma as the leader of the winning party according to the results of the 1990 general election; instead military government put her under house arrest and intensified crack down on her supporters.

In Burma, power is centred on the ruling junta which maintains strict authoritarian rule over the people of Burma. Under the illegitimate military regime, people of Burma are suffering very tremendously.

To find the solution for Burma crisis by political means, Aung San Suu Kyi is always calling for genuine dialogue.

The best birthday present we can give for Aung San Suu Kyi is working harder implementing what she said and fulfilling her vision by doing whatever we can to free Burma. Every actions, every voices and every words count. Please get involved to work collectively to restore justice in Burma.

Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) called for the release of Aung San Suu Kyi immediately and unconditionally.

Realising what Aung San Suu Kyi said is tantamount to giving “The Best Birthday Present For Aung San Suu Kyi”.

Thank you very much for your unwavering support.

Best regards,

Myo Thein
