Show your support for Aung San Suu Kyi by attending a candlelight vigil for her at 5pm Wednesday 12 August at Martin Place.

Aung San Suu Kyi was sentenced last night to one-and-a-half years detention, by Burma's Military Dictatorship, in addition to her already 13 year long detention.
Aung San Suu Kyi was first placed under house arrest in 1989 and was subsequently charged with breaking the conditions of this illegal arrest after an uninvited US citizen allegedly visited her house. In effect, she has been prosecuted and sentenced because someone broke into her home.

The continued harassment and detention of Aung San Suu Kyi demonstrates the regime’s ambitions to silence Burma’s greatest hope: that of freedom, peace and national reconciliation.
This week Aung San Suu Kyi was awarded Amnesty International’s Ambassador of Conscious Award.

Show support for Aung San Suu Kyi and Light a Candle at Martin Place 5 pm today.
