Aung San Suu Kyi (as well as another Burmese freedom fighter Ma Khin Khin Leh, also listed as a Prisoner of Conscience by Amnesty International) is such an extraordinary inspiration. It's absolutely revolting that the military in Myanmar continues to keep her prisoner.

Mind if I cross-post this article to amnestyint?

Walk On is written about / dedicated to Aung San Suu Kyi.

It's one of the many issues that U2 are passionate about. Walk On is dedicated to her (they also sang happy birthday to her on the Vertigo Tour!), which is why ATYCLB was banned in Myanmar.
