19 June marks the 63rd birthday of Burma’s pro-democracy leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and the 4,619th day of her detention.On 6 June, the SPDC indicated that Daw Suu could be detained up to 27 November 2009 under existing law.

The international community continues to praise Daw Suu and her efforts to promote freedom and democracy even as Burma’s military regime aims to stifle them. A vital figure in national reconciliation, Daw Suu’s voice has been muted in a time of economic, political, and humanitarian crisis in Burma. Now more than ever, Burma needs Daw Suu.
