Images of a democracy icon

May 15, 2009

Detained Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi is one of the most difficult people for journalists to photograph as access to the democracy icon is severely limited. Often the only way to see an image of Suu Kyi is on the posters and placards of demonstrators protesting her detention, or in the case above against fresh charges brought against her.

It is a shame and sense of lack of power for all of us as Human Beings to be witness of impunity and abuse by the Myanmar Authorities with The leader opposition AUNG SANG SUU KYI.
As a woman I consider it is an atrocity tthat is not being addressed. Her vulnerable situation is a sample of what violence against freedom and against woman in the world faces.
