Every 3rd May reminds me of the honourable journalists who are fighting for us to gamble their lives in search of truth out there.

Give them a big and rapturous applause!!!

What about you? Do you have something to tell them? Appreciate your thoughts.

Living in the world with lies more than truth,
Lee

Today is Ang Sang Sue Kyi's 60-year-old Birthday - "Joan Art of Myanmar". She received The Nobel Peace Prize in 1991.

Wow, Happy Birthday to Her!!!

Is she still under house arrest?

Yes, and today's media and many leaders are pressing the Myanmar government to come up with a direct-talk. Hope things could churn out... she didn't even have a chance to meet her husband years ago...and her husband passed away...

Sigh...

From Lee's link-Suu Kyi herself was reported to be held at a military "guest house" north of Yangon, though the government refused to confirm her location.

very ominous...all this for saying something the government didn't agree with?

Very sad indeed :(

I didn't look at the links yet, but since I like Burma & the Burmese people so much, I've followed her situation from afar, she's been under house arrest for A LOT of the last 15 years! I think one stretch was around 6 years. The Burmese government Sucks!
