Day 14: Aung San Suu Kyi on “The thirst for democracy in Burma”

The thirst for democracy is stronger than ever, for the Burmese have suffered much more since 1988, under the present dictatorship, than under those of preceding regimes. In reality, the gulf is widening between the Army and the population; it is a sign there is no hope for this regime.

(Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma’s Elected Legitimate Leader)

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, human rights and rule of law in Burma where everyone can enjoy freedom of speech, press, beliefs, assembly and rule of law that emphasizes the protection of individual rights.
