Call for the Immediate Release of Aung San Suu Kyi and All Prisoners of Conscience in Myanmar

Myanmar's military junta recently put Nobel Peace laureate and pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi on trial on flimsy charges that could land her in the country's notorious Insein Prison for 5 years.

Suu Kyi has already spent much of the past 20 years under house arrest. Her prolonged imprisonment in Insein Prison, which has been referred to as the "darkest hell-hole in Burma," could effectively be a death sentence given her declining health.

Despite the long periods of confinement she's endured for the past 20 years, Aung San Suu Kyi's commitment to the struggle for human rights has been an unmatched symbol of hope to the people of Myanmar and an inspiration to those dedicated to justice and human rights the world over.

Don't let this be Suu Kyi's last stand.  Please call on Myanmar's leaders to free Aung San Suu Kyi and all other prisoners of conscience.
