Peace vigil for Aung San Suu Kyi @ Speakers’ Corner

Message from Maruah (Singapore Working Group for an ASEAN Human Rights Mechanism), which is organising a peace vigil for Aung San Suu Kyi at 5.30pm on May 31 at Speakers’ Corner.

This is a peaceful rally to ask as many people in Singapore to give two hours of their time to show support to a courageous women – Daw Aung Sung Suu Kyi – who has been placed under house arrest for almost two decades and now is held in a formidable prison.

We, as organizers, will be upset for you if we, had in any way, not advised supporters to mind themselves so that we all stay within the law while asking that Daw Aung Sung Suu Kyi be released.

So please do not be alarmed by this advisory or be put off by it. Stay true to your heart’s desire of wanting to show support, please come and, if you are a foreigner especially, be just mindful of supporting without breaking any local laws.

Theme: YELLOW! Vigil with speeches and light candles as a symbol of asking for her to be set free.

*Come dressed in yellow*

  1. Thanks for your personal support as well as all those will be there.

    “Don’t cry for” Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, not like Yattaw said, is not scared. She may not come from land of free and brave but she surely got what most of US(money ,army) don’t have. Like the boy who cry wolf, the shout of UN, Unions, organization ,think tank institution are only shedding crocodile tears without any affects. Just a shame.

    I cannot be there physically but I will be there spiritually.

    Please share this thought if possible, All Burmese must raise money to lobby the US, the only way we are going to get any subtential assistance or go it ourselves( those Burmese living outside of Myanmar ) by publicising the situation in Myanmar constantly, not waiting for Daw Aung San Suu Kyi or the Monks or students predicament.

    thank you

  2. You completed a number of good points there. I did a search on the topic and found the majority of folks will have the same opinion with your blog.
