Petition To Call International Attention About Aung San Suu Kyi
#1
Dear Friends,

I just joined a global movement to free Burmese democracy leader and Nobel Peace prize winner, Aung San Suu Kyi and 2,100 other political prisoners and I thought that you would want to get involved.

The only crime Aung San Suu Kyi and her fellow prisoners have committed was to peacefully call for democracy. Days before she was due to be released after 13 years of detention, the brutal regime has locked up again on trumped up charges. She is seriously ill, but the brutal military regime wants to keep her under lock and key so that she cannot challenge them in next year's elections.

The petition is calling on the UN Secretary General to act now -- he can require the prisoners release as a condition of renewed international engagement. The petition will be presented on May 26th by brave Burmese democracy activists -- so we have just 6 days to build a massive global movement. Click on the link to sign the petition and send this email on to friends and family!

Thank you so much for your help!
