Living asian hero awards - vote for Aung San Suu Kyi of Burma

Dear Friends of Freedom and Human Rights,
Help raise awareness about the world's ONLY incarcerated Nobel Peace Prize Recipient!
Use your online voice in Time Magazine Asia's "living Asian hero" awards for
2004 by casting your vote for Aung San Suu Kyi of Burma.
To learn more about this incredible woman hero, go to www.uscampaignforburma.org
Then cast your vote at: https://www.timeinc.net/time/secure/asia/heroes/2004/

About Aung San Suu Kyi
Vaclav Havel has called her "an outstanding example of the power of the powerless."
Bono, lead singer of U2 says, "She's my hero." Who is this woman?
Aung San Suu Kyi leads a popular struggle for freedom and democracy in the Southeast Asian country of Burma. The country is ruled by one of the world's most brutal military regimes,
which uses rape, torture, and killing to maintain its grip on power. Thousands of Burmese
people have perished in the struggle for human rights and democracy, while journalists,
writers, students, and others remain locked behind bars as political prisoners.
For her nonviolent resistance to Burma's military regime, Aung San Suu Kyi has spent the
majority of the past 15 years under house arrest. However, like Nelson Mandela when he was imprisoned, Aung San Suu Kyi serves as a beacon of hope to the Burmese freedom struggle. Surviving physical abuse, deprivation of food, and two assassination attempts, she is a
shining light of freedom in a land of darkness. For her efforts, she has won the Nobel
Peace Prize, the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought from the European Parliament,
India's Jawaharlal Nehru Prize for International Understanding, and the US Presidential
Medal of Freedom.

I knew her, like Adam knew Eve, every tear you cry is a tear that I will bleed.
