The Generals Get Another Excuse To Persecute Aung San Suu Kyi

The odd story of an American tourist swimming to Aung San Suu Kyi’s compound where she is held under house arrest has now given the junta the excuse to charge the opposition leader/rightfully elected head of state and move her from her house arrest to Insein jail. She is to be charged with breaching the conditions of her detention, a detention that was imposed by the military dictators to remove her after she won the election. This is a way for the military to weaken democratic opposition ahead of the staged ‘elections’ they plan in 2010.  The Burma Campaign ask for people to go to this page of their site and for starters send an email putting pressure on ASEAN leaders & the UN. What further and more effective action can be taken I will pass on later along with more info.
