The 1991 Nobel Peace Prize winner has been under house arrest for over 11 of the last 17 years and has been continuously incarcerated for the past four years. She is being held by the government of Myanmar because they consider her activities (speaking against the military junta that runs the country, running the major pro-democracy party) and her person (the daughter of the founding father of Myanmar) a threat to their political authority. She is not permitted to use the telephone. She is not permitted visitors. She does not have regular access to medical care. She is one of 1200 people detained indefinitely.

To learn more about her, try this or to learn more about the larger human rights abuses in Myanmar, click here. To lend a hand in pressuring for her release, stay tuned…or anyone with the pertinent Amnesty info, post it.
