Aung San Suu Kyi faced her oppressors last week on charges that could land her in jail for five years. The trial came just days before she was set to be released from house arrest. Her life is on the line. Her health is at risk, and five years of torture and abuse at the infamous Insein prison could spell disaster.
Amnesty International rapid response to these developments started 2 weeks ago in Australia (a member of ASEAN) when the Amnesty section over there mobilized and generated over 7,000 letters to ASEAN. Since then, the chairman of ASEAN called on Myanmar to release Aung San Suu Kyi.
