Dear Friend,

We’ve just heard that from inside Burma’s notorious Insein prison Aung San Suu Kyi has asked her lawyer to thank the tens of thousands of people that wished her happy birthday last Friday.

Her lawyer Nyan Win just released this message: “She said she thanks those at home and abroad who wished her a happy birthday, because she cannot reply to everyone”.

Burma’s brutal regime wants the world to forget Aung San Suu Kyi. The tens of thousands of people like you that left birthday messages of support to her sent a strong message to Burma’s General’s. We showed that the world will never forget Burma’s democracy leader or any the 2,155 political prisoners currently detained in appalling conditions inside Burma.

We’d like to thank everyone that left messages of support for Suu Kyi on the website, http://www.64forSuu.org and on her Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/aungsansuukyi. If you haven’t sent her a message of support yet there’s still time, just go to http://www.64forSuu.org.

Thank you for all your support, together we are making progress.

PS: On Friday 64forSuu.org came under a sophisticated highly targeted cyber attack which took the site offline for 20 minutes, we believe the attack was an attempt by the Burmese regime to force the site offline. Our security measures worked and no data was lost. Find out more here: http://64forsuu.blogspot.com/2009/06/cyberattack-on-64forsuuorg.html
