Add Your Voice In Support of Aung San Suu Kyi

Not On Our Watch is proud to announce its support of 64forSuu.org, a new website calling for the release of Burma’s pro-democracy leader, Aung San Suu Kyi--as well as all of Burma’s political prisoners. Launching today, the website will become the global hub of the international campaign to release Aung San Suu Kyi.
 
64forSuu.org allows anyone to upload video, text, image, or twitter messages of support to Burma’s imprisoned pro-democracy leader, Aung San Suu Kyi. 64forSuu.org aims to demonstrate the scale of outrage over her continued detention by encouraging high-profile individuals and the public around the world to write a 64 word message, a “64,” that will be delivered on Aung San Suu Kyi’s 64th birthday on June 19th.

Follow the jump for a link to 64forSuu.org, and add your voice to the growing call for freedom for Aung San Suu Kyi and all of Burma's political prisoners.
