Aung San Suu Kyi Faces Trial today
By Manuwant Choudhary
Aung San Suu Kyi, the brave Burmese democracy leader, faces trial today and the charge being an American John Yettaw breaking into her heavily protected home, which is also her prison.
The European Union has called for the immediate release of Aung San, while foriegn ministers of ASEAN at Hanoi have also called for her release but Burma's military junta issued warnings against Thailand saying they will not tolerate interference in their `internal' affairs.
Surely, if you imprison an entire people, lock-up democracy itself and rule by brute force you have no soverignty left - the Burmese people need to be set free.
Not just sanctions the worlds powers must swim across the oceans just like John Yettaw did and set an example.
Burma must be freed.
