Amnesty International USA: Obama says free Suu Kyi
Suu Kyi

WASHINGTON, D.C. (RPRN) 11/17/09 — This past weekend, in the first meeting of its kind to ever take place with a sitting U.S. President, President Obama met with the 10 leaders of ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) and called for action on human rights issues in Myanmar. More directly, Obama urged Myanmar's prime minister, Thein Sein, to release democracy leader, Aung San Suu Kyi as well as other political prisoners in Myanmar.

President Obama's support comes at the perfect time. His words add fuel to the fire that Amnesty International supporters started a long time ago. And come December 5-13th, Myanmar's leaders will see just how brightly our flame can burn.

We're so close! Last year at this time, many people thought that Suu Kyi had no chance at ever being released. Today, we are positive that her release is not only possible, but could happen very soon. But we don't just want Suu Kyi released, we want her free – enjoying all of her human rights.

The more letters we send on behalf of Aung San Suu Kyi, the better chance we have at urging Myanmar's leaders to free Aung San Suu Kyi.

Choose your level of support. Please pledge to write 1, 5, or 10 letters on behalf of Aung San Suu Kyi and this year's other Write-a-thon cases:



I will write 1 letter asking for the release of Aung San Suu Kyi

I will write 5 letters on behalf of the Write-a-thon cases of my choice

I will write 10 letters; 1 for each Write-a-thon case


Thank you for your support.
