Aung San Suu Kyi - Burma

Aung San Suu Kyi, die unter Hausarrest stehende Oppositionspolitikerin in Burma, wandte sich an den US Congress mit der Bitte um Unterstützung. Sie möchte erreichen, dass eine UN-Menschenrechts Resolution in ihrem Land umgesetzt wird. Dieses Videoband wurde vor einem Ausschuss des Kongresses zu Burma gezeigt.

Suh Kyi steht seit über 20 Jahren unter Hausarrest. Sie möchte ihr Land nicht verlassen, aus Angst, nicht mehr zurückkehren zu dürfen.


Burma’s pro-democracy leader, Aung San Suu Kyi addressed US Congress through a video link today, seeking to help force Burma’s military junta to abide by a UN Human Rights Council Resolution passed in March. The resolution deals with the issues of political prisoners, freedom of association and information, independence of the judiciary, and the right of the UN Human Rights Rapporteur to visit the country.
“I’‘ve never made a statement before a committee of the United States Congress, so I’‘m not quite sure how to go about it. I would simply like to use this occasion to request that you do whatever you can to help us implement the United Nations Human Rights Council Resolution, because that will open up the real road to democracy for all of us.”
Suu Kyi, who was held under house-arrest for most of the past 2 decades, made her statement by videotape, a she is reluctant to leave the Burma for fear she would not be allowed to return. In her message to the committee, Suu Kyi asked for help to make Burma an open society: 
 “The requests, the urgings, the demands of this resolution are very much in line with what we in Burma think is needed to start Burma along the genuine process of democratization.”
