Sign This Petition in Support of Aung San Suu Kyi and the people of Burma

August 11, 2009

From Avaaz

Today, Aung San Suu Kyi, the iconic Burmese pro democracy leader, was cruelly sentenced to another year and a half of detention on trumped up charges.

But this is just the tip of the iceberg of thousands of crimes committed by the regime against the Burmese people. Over the next two months, with the UK and the US holding the Presidency of the United Nations Security Council, we have our best chance to get an international inquiry that could lead to the top generals’ arrests. But we need a massive global movement to push the US, UK and the Council to act and persuade China not to veto.
