Tomorrow We May Learn the Fate of Aung San Suu Kyi

Fear is not the natural state of civilized people. ~ Aung San Suu Kyi

The Lady in Our Hearts

If all goes as expected, the verdict in the pseudo-trial of Burmese democracy leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Aung San Suu Kyi, will be announced tomorrow. Of course, it will be tomorrow in Burma long before it is in the United States.

The expectations are not good: Aung San Suu Kyi has said that she expects the outcome of her trial will be
painfully obvious

Meanwhile, the dictatorial generals who rule Burma have warned that any predictions of the outcome would amount to contempt of court.

On a more positive note, U2 lead singer Bono has used a concert in Dublin to announce Aung San Suu Kyi has won Amnesty International's highest honour, the Ambassador of Conscience Award.

Tomorrow is Positive Day, the brilliant idea of
a twelve year old girl!

  1. Now that's interesting about Aung. I must look out for that.

  2. My thoughts are with her and all the others who are imprisoned by that odious regime.
